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 a restless spirit and the African gods seek justice...

 I honestly don't know how I do it sometimes... Managing to someone carve out a way to bring my cast and crew to the set with little finance.  But if I work very hard and wear a multitude of hats somehow... Somehow it all works out! So grateful to my wonderful cast and a professional and patient crew!  Enjoy the pics and the little video, for they tell the story of a great day from Spanish Harlem to Rockaway Beach...
