SYNOPSIS OF 5 MOVIE SCRIPTS

 

The Little Black Angel

The story starts in 1900 in a hospital in the deep segregated South, where Melinda, a white prejudiced woman who had seen the black people living and working as slaves all her life, gives birth to a black baby girl. She is completely surprised and mad at the same time because she cannot understand why this happened to her.  Immediately because of her hatred for black people, she rejects the child and makes life miserable for her husband, the child and everybody around her. The child turns out to be very sweet and talented, but suffers tremendously because of her mother’s complete indifference and rejection toward her. The only reason the marriage survives is because the husband is extremely benevolent and suffers in silence, not only because his wife rejects the child, but because she also rejects him blaming him for the child’s skin color.  Not being able to keep the secret any longer, Melinda’s mother on her death bed tells Melinda that years ago she had an affair with a black man and that Melinda is the product of that love affair. It takes Melinda completely by surprise knowing that her daughter is black because of her genes and not because of her husband’s.  She cries uncontrollably knowing that instead of being the innocent victim, as she presumed to be for so many years, she had been the guilty one.  As difficult as it is for her because of her character, she makes an attempt to sincerely repent.  She apologizes to her husband and daughter for being so mean to them all those years.  The husband and the daughter, who is now almost an adult, forgive her because all they have been seeking all along is for her to receive their love and to acknowledge them as her family.

 

Love Prevails

The story starts in Hollister, California in 1945 when Mary, a Christian woman, who has been trying to get pregnant for many years, has a dream and in that dream Jesus appears to her and tells her that she is going to have twin boys.  She does not know if it’s only a wishful-thinking dream or if it’s a real one from God. Within the next few months she has more dreams and God tells her to name the children Elijah and Elisha after the two prophets. The children are born and the couple is extremely happy. Then in 1947 many bikers come to town disrupting the peace and quiet of a sleepy town and putting the family in danger.  The movie, “The Wild One,” starring Marlon Brando was based on that. The story stays in Northern California going up to the 1970’s.  It focuses on the Christian upbringing the family gives their twin boys in which they teach them to live entirely by faith.  The first test to challenge their faith comes when the family doctor tells Jack, the father, that he has terminal cancer and that he has only a few months to live. The news is totally unexpected and Jack receives it almost in total disbelief.  He asks himself and God the usual question:  “Why is this happening to me just when everything was going so well?”  Doubts begin to crowd every other thought out of his mind.  Because of unconfessed sin, the demon of cancer has entered his body.

The twins, who are now attending the university, come home for the summer.  As they find out that the father has cancer, they begin to fast and pray with their parents.  One day, Elijah – one of the twins prays over his father.  He rebukes the spirit of cancer, who talks back to him, but has no choice but to come out in the name of Jesus.  Jack, the father, is completely healed leaving the doctor confused as to how he was healed from terminal cancer.

As the boys are returning back to the university ORU the plane crashes, but just before it does the boys pray for God to protect them.  Many passengers die, but as a miracle from God the boys are completely unharmed.   The story ends as both of the boys return home and establish their professional lives.  Good prevails over evil and love prevails over everything else.

 

 

From Spain To Israel

The story starts in 1492 when, because of racial hatred for the Jews because of their refusal to convert to Catholicism,  they are expelled from Spain. They are given three choices; convert to Catholicism, leave the country or be incarcerated. Some of them for not complying are killed or injured by the knights. Then the story continues in the 1920’s when a Jewish family, looking for a place to practice their religion and for better financial opportunities, leaves Spain and moves to Mexico.  In Ensenada, Baja California they succeed for a while as sheep ranchers, but then they encounter violence because the Mexicans have not forgotten that the Spaniards plundered their land.  On top of that, at that time, there are still many wealthy Spaniards raising sheep and paying the Mexican peasants very low wages for taking care of the sheep. The Mexican peasants resent that, but they have no choice since they are extremely poor.  Their child Aviel is taunted and beaten up by Mexican children because they consider him to be a Spaniard who does not belong to the Catholic religion.  The hatred against them grows to the point where the locals burn their house down and want to kill them.  As they see the locals approaching their house at night with torches, they flee for their lives. The family goes to Tijuana where the father is killed by a drunk. Eventually the wife, Chava, remarries.  A Mexican-American pastor, whom she met when they prayed for a dead Mexican child who had been run over by a car and as a result of their faith and prayer God revived him, asked her to marry him. She does and they move to the United States.  Aviel grows up in the United States and having seen hatred against his people most of his life and having seen God perform miracles, becomes a pastor in the US, gets married to a Jewish girl and by God’s will they relocate to Israel in 1948 where they see the birth of a new nation.  Together they start the first Christian church in the new nation of Israel.

The story is very realistic because it does follow history.  It has love, hatred, friendships, family relationships and miracles because of their faith in God.

 

The Unwanted Ones

In 13th century England, a wealthy childless and unbelieving couple who has never heard from God hears from Him through dreams. At first they don’t know what to make of it, but as the dreams keep reoccurring they not only begin to believe and have faith in God, but they take action.   They are told to leave everything behind, to build a cabin in Sherwood Forest, to rescue twelve urchins from the streets of Nottingham and raise them in the woods as if they were their own, teaching them how to become productive Christian citizens by learning to be responsible, by loving themselves, loving others and loving God.  Each individual child as well as each adult goes through the growing process of learning how to live in a primitive environment,  how to work as a team,  who they really are, how to establish a relationship with God, how to grow in faith and how to depend on God for everything. In the process they encounter many challenges that brings out the best or the worst in each one of them. Some of the dangers they overcome are poisonous snakes, dangerous bears and bobcats. Other obstacles are:  Robin Hood and his men, who threaten them, but then become their friends,  hard work and a strong discipline.  Because some of the children are in danger and have not yet fully believed in God, Jesus appears to them to protect them and to let them know that He is real. This not only affirms the faith of the children, but it also reaffirms the faith of the adults, who are also going through the process of learning to live God’s way.

This story has everything:  Doubt, faith, lack of discipline, discipline, love, fear, grit, compassion, danger and much more.

 

God Has No Boundaries

God’s love, protection, forgiveness and authority have no boundaries as it is demonstrated in this story, which deals with a current situation that many families are facing today.  It starts in Tecate, Baja California, Mexico where an American pastor and his wife have made intimate connections with the local Mexican people. Because of the dire situation in Mexico, the pastor and his wife illegally and successfully smuggled a young Mexican family into the US.  If they had been caught they would be facing jail or prison time.  They would be considered “coyotes,” people who smuggle illegal aliens into our country. The young couple comes with two small children.  By borrowing birth certificates from parents of American children who had died, the parents are able to enroll the children in school with fake names. The children adjust quite well, but the parents are forced to live in the shadows, as if they were criminals.  Pastor Bill takes Memo, the Mexican man, to Utah where they are giving driver’s licenses to illegal aliens. On their way to Utah they find a man who has died in an automobile accident and has gone to hell.  They pray for him, his soul comes back to his body and his injuries are completely healed.  Once Memo has his license, he is able to use a pickup to do yard maintenance work. However, Memo and the family still live in constant fear of being deported. Tito, Memo’s oldest son, asks an American girl to a high school dance.  She goes with him because she likes him, but her grandfather is opposed to the whole thing because he is totally prejudiced against Mexican people, but since her grandmother likes the boy everything turns out OK.  After quite a few years of living in this country, Memo and his wife are caught by immigration officers and are sent to an immigration detention camp near San Diego.  Their two sons, who are now teenagers, with help from the pastor, his congregation and from God manage to get their parents released.

Many Hispanic families are facing similar problems right now.  Families are separated, children are left without their parents, wives are left without husbands and husbands are left without wives.  As long as Mexico, the Central American and the South American countries remain third-world countries the problem will remain.  There are no protagonists or antagonists, but there are many victims on both sides of the border.
