Inspired by true events that took place in the rural town of White Plains, Alabama in 1959, Viola tells the story of Viola Hyatt, a 30-year-old woman who takes matters into her own hands after she is raped by two brothers who work on her father’s farm.

Pre-#MeToo, this story revolves around the sexualization and dismissal of women in the face of misogyny and hardship.

Viola was not produced by McDorky Productions, and ownership belongs to FSU. If you'd like to check out this and more of Alex's work that he created during his time at FSU, contact him!
