Hello everyone!! I am so glad you took the time out of your busy schedules and came to my website.  “Tainted Love” .  You see 3 years ago I met the love of my life. We had so many plans to get married, have children and live out our lives together. We had a few setbacks, which were not easy to deal with by any means.  We never knew that one day our dreams would come to an end, and our world would be turned upside down.

 

Welcome | Love’s Prelude

Welcome to the official website for Rachel Anderson’s upcoming film, Tainted Love. In allowing us to share with you our story, you are granting us an opportunity to immortalize the legacy of one couple’s tumultuous battle against increasingly stacked odds and their impassioned push to affirm the unyielding perseverance of true love.

For Rachel Anderson, this true story of love’s challenging journey began three years ago, when she met and fell in love with the man who would someday change her life for good. Before long, the two would discuss their plans for their future together, from the beautiful wedding that they would prepare for, to the many children that they’d hoped would follow.

While the two experienced a world of setbacks – some beyond what many could even conceive of – they were determined to stay together at all costs. With their will unwavering, they never in a million years could have imagined that a wicked twist of fate would bring all of their dreams to an end, turning their once hopeful and promising world completely upside down.

Tainted Love

Tainted Love | The Story

What would you do with a world cut in two? With a life that’s two-sided? A heart left divided?

This is the conundrum that Samantha Johnson must face each and every day as she struggles to solve for a way to bring together a future with a black fiancé and a life with a racially intolerant father into blissful coexistence.

Despite the support of a loving mother, Samantha finds that her father’s resistance and her best friend’s unbiased yet blatant disapproval of her relationship with her destined lover, Drake, continuously create more and more hurdles on an already difficult track. It isn’t enough that Peter, a colleague, friend and confidante, is gunning for her heart, and equipped with the incessantly overt advocacy of her roommate and lifelong friend, Allison.

And Samantha isn’t the only one with external forces working against their plans to be together. Drake’s former relationships and run-ins with the past bring to a head a new world of challenges, including Samantha’s growing fears of failing to win over Drake’s young daughter, Diamond, as they struggle to form a family together.

But if Samantha and Drake’s relationship can survive the multidirectional pulls of so many strong and steadfast personalities, how could anything else possibly stand in their way?
