It's a story about a Caribbean girl who comes to the United States after day dreaming all day.
Some very early sketches
I had this idea many summers ago, to write a story about the kids from my home town. I was interested in writing of the adventures that they would undertake like fighting giant tarantulas. Over the year's I worked out that I really just wanted to make a short film about myself and my childhood. I thought my story was different from everyone else's and I wanted to tell it.
