SYNOPSIS:

My idea is about a girl that died because of her dad. All starts when the girl stays late after school and her dad thinks she’s doing something wrong. Whenever the girl gets home she sees that her dad is mad at her because she wasn’t at home at the time she was supposed to be. The dad starts to abuse her (not sexually). She runs away from home to the closest park and cries. It is late at night when her dad starts to look for her. Some bad guys are in the park and see her lonely and weak, so they kidnapped her. The guys abuse her again (now sexually) and the bad guys put drugs in her. She gets extremely sick and starts screaming for help. The bad dudes can’t control her and they start to beat her up. One of the bad guys kick her in the head and she goes unconscious. They think she’s dead and run away. A couple hours later her dad finds her and starts to cry. Her dad starts to talk to her about how bad he feels for what he did. He tells her that she is her most valuable treasure and that he never wanted something bad for her. He also tells her that he loves her as much as she can imagine. The last words he says are “forgive me, forgive me because I’m the one that got you into all the things I never wanted for you”. At that moment the girl wakes up and says, “It’s okay dad, I love you too”. With her last words hardly spoken she says “I know you only wanted the best for me, I love you dad, and please never doubt my love like you doubted me”… to be continued …end. -Gonzalo Ibarra
