Interview by Paul Salfen
SYNOPSIS: “Hightown” follows one woman’s journey to sobriety, overshadowed by a murder. Jackie Quiñones, a hard-partying townie and lesbian (and agent in the National Marine Fisheries Service) discovers a body on the beach, and becomes convinced it’s up to her to solve the case. She’s immediately at odds with Sergeant Ray Abruzzo, an abrasive but effective member of the Cape Cod Interagency Narcotics Unit. As their lives crash together, we’re reminded how complicated — and deadly — our addictions can be.
