A Summer in 1993 in Spanish Harlem finally reveals the secret past of Cuban-American cardiac nurse Negra Centron. A childhood secret torments the life and stifles the growth of a beautiful woman. The ancient religion of the Yoruba people of Nigeria, known as Regla de Ocha and Santeria in the Diaspora, is the engine behind this supernatural mystery thriller. This African-evolved religion, with its magic, is the backdrop for this tale of love, hate, deceit, betrayal, obsession, forgiveness, acceptance, and hope. Magic, ritual, and destiny are the threads unraveling this gripping, edgy, mystery/thriller.

Pressured by a suspicious mother, a strange bed-fellow, and an amorous co-worker, Negra battles to keep a childhood secret from unraveling while the African gods seek justice...

Troubled cardiac nurse "Negra Centron" has a childhood secret.  Her godmother
the Santeria priestess "Iya Carmen" knows that she is hiding something
terrible and will get down to the bottom of it one way or another in the
 feature film, A Wound in Time.

The dapper, cigar smoking Cuban with the Chango smile,
 "Ruben Centron", and the eccentric, loving wife who he swept off her feet
when she was just a girl in Matanzas, Cuba, "Millie Centron".  Just two of
the many colorful characters in A Wound in Time!
Gay and fabulous fashionisto and freelance photographer Chee Chee
is Negra's best friend.  Or shall we say, ONLY friend.  He is none to happy
about that "strange" relationship she has with Tony Perez.

Tony Perez can't help that he's a "female magnet" and that Lourdes is obsessed
with him. But his "strange" relationship with Negra has Lourdes
on his ass, and has Negra's mom, Millie, vexed!
Successful professional, the bourgie "Clinton Williams", has a warped view
of the old neighborhood and the folks who live there. He only ventures to
 East Harlem from his Long Island beachfront property to check on his moms
who refuses to leave in the feature film, A Wound in Time.

"Mrs. Francine Isenstat" is a Manhattan socialite and wife of wealthy financier
 "Irving Isenstat" of Sutton Place. Their savvy housekeeper "Marta" referred Fran
 to "Iya Carmen", a Santeria priestess from her neighborhood, for a consultation
 regarding Irv's business dealings in the feature film, A Wound in Time.

The Vico Brothers, Bobby and his older brother East Harlem wise guy Domenic,
 are very close. Bobby and his best friend Tony Perez grew up together
and Domenic lets them both enjoy the fruits of his labor from time to time.
 Unlike Tony, Bobby is a happily married family man.

So happen to welcome Gavel Phoenix to the cast.  She takes on the role of the eccentric mom of the lead character, "Negra", as "Millie Centron".  Ironically, Gavel is also an attorney like our Gerard Marrone, who plays East Harlem mob boss "Domenic Vico", as well as a former judge.  She has done several films as well as stage plays.
Gavel Phoenix as "Millie Centron"
Tina Moore, who was originally cast for the role, had to withdraw due to schedule conflicts.  Tina will be standing by to do background when needed.
