Mea Culpa is a steamy thriller about criminal defense lawyer Mea Harper (Rowland), who decides to represent seductive artist Zyair (Rhodes). The artist is accused of killing his girlfriend and may be a “psychopath,” but desire takes hold between the attorney and client, and things get dangerous.

Tyler Perry wrote and directed the film, as well as co-produced it.
