A Perfect Family in turmoil...A son who is determined to fix it by any means necessary...

Gotham Entertainment and the Raslan Company of America present Ritual, a powerful psychological drama written and directed by Stanley Bennett Clay, based on his award-winning stage play. Ritual stars Clarence Williams III (The General's Daughter), Denise Nicholas (CBS-TV "In the Heat Of The Night"), Angelle Brooks (The VIPs), and Shawn Michael Howard (Above The Rim).

Leon Becker (Clearance Williams III) is a successful and wealthy Malibu attorney and the patriarch of a seemingly perfect and harmonious family. Leon sees his brood not only as the pinnacle of personal achievement, but also as an example to all that the great American Dream is attainable, even if you are Black. but underneath the surface, the Beckers are a family in crisis. Leon is completely oblivious to the trials and tribulations that exist in his home and is equally detached from his ethnic soul. Wife and mother Sylvia (Nicholas) is on the verge of alcoholism and is threatened by her daughter Teresa (Brooks), a cunning "electra" who seems to want to replace her in the house and, perhaps, the bedroom. And Becker's brooding son Mason (Howard) drops out of his Ivy League school and returns home to confront his family's problems. yet, all these trials-by fire are the challenges along the path to survival for this American family.
