Strowlers: Pilot

In a world where magic is real and regulated by the government, everyone with talent must either register or run. Two women are caught on opposite sides of the conflict. Part-time librarian Whit (Tanesha Ross) just wants to tell stories and enjoy a quiet life with her girlfriend Amanda (Trin Miller). But when her favorite fairy tale comes to life during a reading at the library—summoning government forces intent on repressing all non-sanctioned magic—she is thrust into a world where underground magic users fight for their right to exist, where children with powers are torn from their families, and where her girlfriend’s research threatens to throw the entire system into chaos. Now, she must choose between loyalty to her partner and protecting a young girl who can’t control her newfound magic.
