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.

REVISED "A WOUND IN TIME" SCREENPLAY ENTERS GOTHAM SCREEN FESTIVAL

Revised screenplay adaption of "A Wound In Time" will be entered into the Gotham Screen Film Fesitval. This is a REAL New York festival that I wanted to enter last year but missed the deadline. The screenplay adaptation was a semifinalist and a quarterfinalist in 2 of the 3 festivals it was entered into last year. I was recently notified by one of the festivals, as a quarterfinalist, that semifinalists will be announced next week. I totally thought they had chosen their winners by now and was surprised. But I am looking forward to the Gotham with my new revisions of adding more visuals. Stay tuned...
