Thriller Short Screenplay: GRAVEL HEART by Michael Curtis

Deadline September 15th for Thriller/Suspense Film and Writing Festival
https://thrillersuspensefestival.com/

Short Screenplay: GRAVEL HEART
by Michael Curtis

SYNOPSIS:

A 14-year-old puts his life in jeopardy when he confronts a neighbor for killing his dog. The script is loosely based on something that happened to me about 10 years ago when a man shot and killed one of my dogs for what seemed like sport. Just meanness. Gravel Heart is a reimagined version – kind of a gritty coming of age story that explores loss and the limits of retribution.

CAST LIST:

NARRATOR – Angelica Alejandro
Tommy – Nathan Kohn
Brick – Jason Martorino
Cosgrove – Jason J. Thomas
Celia – Stephanie Seaton
