In 2018, Jessica Manafort (Paul Manafort’s oldest daughter) released her second feature-length film, a neo noir thriller called Rosy. Rosy tells the story of a stylish young woman who is kidnapped and held in the basement of a midcentury home. Rosy had no theatrical release and received no reviews.

Around the time that Jessica Manafort was working on Rosy, her husband, Jeffrey Yohai, was involved in a series of real estate scams around Los Angeles, for which he is currently serving time. 1550 Blue Jay Way tells the story of those crimes and their aftermath.
