A sunny day in Brooklyn scouting locations!
A sunny day in Brooklyn scouting locations!

                                                            Our Story

A special needs kid from Brooklyn, overcomes some of life's obstacles, and leads his dysfunctional Italian community to a greater faith in GOD after a tragic accident and near death experience makes everyone's prayers come true.

In the Italian American enclave of Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn, soccer moms, shopkeepers, priests, gamblers and ladies of the night, hold each other together with a lighthearted spirituality infused by today's modern Christians.  But... Daniel had something much better in mind for his neighborhood.

Daniel, is an unusual teenager, who talks to God, and our mystical God in heaven talks back to Daniel.  Despite witnessing the death of his father at age 6, an event that rattled the faithful in his community, Daniel remains too innocent to be cynical or unhappy.  His vision of everyone as perfect, despite their glaring imperfections, makes him both endearing and inspiring.

He's surrounded by other players; the conflicted mother, the man whose dreams of financial success have given way to organized crime, the girl who sells her body because she fears it's the only way she'll be loved, and the funny wise guys who live a life of unrepentant crime and spiritual bankruptcy, until a crisis reminds them of God's power and love.

When a fishing accident grants Daniel a near death experience and throws the family into chaos, Daniel meets God face to face.  He also meets the old man who's been praying with him in church and guiding him on Earth.  The old man reveals himself in heaven as Daniel's real father, who passed from this world as we discover, and has been guiding Daniel all along.

Daniel becomes God's envoy and is sent back down to fix his neighborhood.  His inspiring homecoming brings an answer to everyone's prayers.  The strip club becomes a restaurant.  The ladies of the night marry the bouncers.  The shopkeeper finally retires from a life of drudgery and the faithful are lead back to God by the innocent boy who puts them in touch with what's best in each of them; their spiritual selves.  Daniel sets their feet gently back on the spiritual path..., the one that God has always intended for us all.

Risks and challenges

We have a team of producers who specialize in various areas of production for each phase. Our entertainment attorney is always available to produce & secure documents and permits when and if needed. If weather prevents an outside scheduled shoot, we can redirect to an indoor shoot if need be.
If an actor/talent becomes ill, or a complication arises and cannot arrive for
the scheduled shoot, this would be covered by an alternate actor of choice, if need be... or a different scene would be selected to shoot, if possible, or necessary.
Give or take a few days or a week off schedule, will still keep us well within our window time for production completion.

Once full funding is in place, we are looking at a 6-7 month production completion, and as much as 18 months to release date.
