19. Catch The Fair One (Reprise)
Native American boxer Kaylee embarks on the fight of her life when she goes undercover in a sex trafficking operation to seek answers and revenge against the men responsible for the disappearance of her sister.
Notes Halpern: “For ‘Catch the Fair One’ director Josef Kubota Wladyka wanted a bold score that would honor Kaylee’s (Kalie Reis) emotional journey into this dark underworld. The opening theme plays Kaylee’s heroic intentions in a melody for French Horn and Wagner Tube over dark strings and synths. Solo viola, frame drum, and heartbeat-like pulses play her forward momentum, set against deep imposing strings and ghostly electronics that grow increasingly distorted as her journey grows darker. The human-rights crisis of missing and murdered Indigenous women – and the wrenching disappearance of her sister Weeta – is set to a recurring, elegaic theme for strings and electronics.”
