SHOOTING SCHEDULE: Mid September
SHOOTING LOCATION: NYC

SYNOPSIS:

Cora Sandoval awakens from a raging fever with an unsettling ability–she sees multi-colored halos around everyone. Everyone, that is, except herself–she glows a sparkling silver.

The disturbing colors are the least of her worries when she witnesses a mysterious man murder by sucking the life energy from people. Now he’s stalking her, and one ominous warning haunts: A mighty flame follows a tiny spark.

Cora is inexplicably drawn to Finn, a gorgeous Irish exchange student. Their attraction is magnetic, primal, urgent, but her overprotective father disapproves, and Finn’s mother orders him home to Ireland upon hearing he’s fallen in love. When Cora discovers her father’s been keeping secrets about her missing mother, she flees to Ireland to look for answers.

There she meets another rare silver-haloed person and discovers her role in a worldwide conspiracy spanning centuries–and a power so incredible that some would kill to possess it.

CHARACTER BREAKDOWNS:

– Cora Sandoval: (17) Simply, effortlessly beautiful. Long, black curly hair. Green eyes. Healthy average-sized girl. Half Irish/half Chilean. Fair skin but something exotic about her. Doesn’t need to wear much makeup. A quiet, empathic, introvert. She’s got inner strength but has never been able to show it or use it. Until now.

– Finn Doyle: (17) Irish exchange student. Irish accent. Black hair, short, spiked in the middle on top. Tawny/honey brown eyes. He is a “rockstar poet”. Sensitive looks with a bit of rogue about him. Plays guitar. Tattoos. He is inexplicably drawn to Cora.

– Giovanni Teso: (18) “Mix a Nordic Viking with a Roman emperor and you’d have Giovanni Teso”. He has an Italian accent. Half Italian/half Danish. He is proud, some might say imperious but there is vulnerability in him. Good looking. Blonde, curly hair. Blue eyes. Tall.

– Benito Sandoval: (mid 40s) Cora’s father. Born in Chile, looks “Latin.” Salt and pepper hair. Meticulous. Scientist.

– Faye: (50s) Black woman who owns a new age bookstore. Gray dreadlocks. Long, flowing skirt. Many rings on her fingers. A crystal around her neck.

– Griffin: (Late 30’s-mid40’s) Tall, gangly man. Blonde hair. Dark, intense eyes. Black coat.

– Janelle: (Mid 30’s-40) Cora’s stepmom. Type A. Perfectly coiffed hair and nails. Means well, but intense to be around.
