Solace is coming of age feature film about an idealistic teenage girl who finds solace in her friendship with the troubled girl next door.

Hope Olaidé Wilson portrays, Sole, a 17-year-old girl whom, upon the death of her father, is forced to live with her only living relative, an estranged grandmother, Irene (Lynn Whitfield). Irene eagerly attempts to make up for lost time with her reluctant granddaughter by recreating a semblance of family with her paramour, Clay (Glynn Turman). Things are further complicated by a looming deadline upon which Sole’s future hinges.  In addition, the questionable influence of her new friends, neighborhood troublemaker, Jasmine (Chelsea Tavares), Jasmine’s girlfriend, DJ Erika (Sydney ‘Syd’ Bennett of the band ‘The Internet’), and the mysterious Guedado (Luke Rampersad), results in a clash of priorities, ideals and unresolved issues.
