Mattson (

Kerry Washington -The Human Stain; RAY;
Spike Lee's She Hate Me; Little Man; The Last
King of Scotland) have just moved into their
California dream home when they are
terrorized  by their next door neighbor, the
tightly wound LAPD officer Abel Turner (
L. Jackson) who disapproves of their
interracial relationship.

Officer Abel
(Jackson) is also a stern, single
father who has appointed himself the
watchdog of the neighborhood.  His nightly foot
patrols and overly watchful eyes bring comfort
to some, but he becomes increasingly
harassing to the newlyweds. These persistent
intrusions into their lives ultimately turn tragic
when the couple decides to fight back.

In real life, Lake View Terrace is a suburb
district in the north east quadrant of the San
Fernando Valley region of the City of Los
Angeles, California.  Surrounding areas
include the Angeles National Forest, Little
Tujunga Canyon, Big Tujunga Canyon, Hansen
Dam, Kagel Canyon, and a portion of the
Verdugo Mountains. The community lies
adjacent to the communities of San Fernando,
Shadow Hills, Sunland, Sun Valley, and
Pacoima. It shares the 91342 zip code with
Sylmar.  The community is middle-class and
racially mixed, including Whites, Hispanics,
African-Americans, and Koreans.  The area
hosts a large equestrian community, and is
one of the few remaining residential areas in
the City of Los Angeles that has private homes
zoned for horsekeeping.

Lake View Terrace gained international
notoriety as the location of the beating of
Rodney King by officers of the Los Angeles
Police Department in 1991.  Other cast
members include Jay Hernandez
and Ron Glass.
