About Between Mercy and Me

Two Musicians. One City. Two Vastly Different Experiences. One Never-Changing God.

Between Mercy and Me is a musical journey into the hearts of unexpected friends Hugo and Mercy. The two struggle to find a connection and hope for their hurting community…and themselves.

As his community begins to shudder under the impact of gentrification and tragedy, Hugho sinks into the emotional circumstances of the world around him. His paster challenges him to produce new music. Something that is a bit more inspirational. The hope is to uplift their congregation.

Facing writer’s block, Hugo visits the new neighborhood coffee shop where he meets Mercy. A jubilant and extroverted musician, Mercy offers to join Hugo in his songwriting efforts.

As their relationship grows, they are surprised by the reactions from their communities, friends, and their own families. Determined to not let hard conversations or tension keep them from being together, they set out to create space for honesty and unification. The duo challenge biases, both seen and unseen, that are often unspoken. Their relationship is rocked by a routine traffic stop that causes them to come face to face with their own internal narratives and beliefs. Will they choose to wear vulnerability with one another? Or, move apart with hard hearts affirming the very biases that they worked so hard to obliterate?
