VONCOSEL Y. HOYOS: ETERNAL OBSESSION
By Jd Moores

GENRE: Crime, Drama, Romance
LOGLINE: This quasi-fictitious short dramatically recalls the "death defying" romance that made national headlines between German Bacteriologist Karl VonCosel with his 22 year-old, Cuban-American TB patient Elena Hoyos over the course of eight or nine years in Depression Era Key West.

SYNOPSIS:

Based loosely on public accounts, Count Carl VonCosel is an aging German bacteriologist at the turn of the Great Depression who meets and falls in love with 22 year-old Key West beauty Elena "Helen" Hoyos. She is literally the woman of his boyhood dreams, which foretold of a raven-haired love of his life, but her deadly battle with the then-incurable tuberculosis infection threatens their illicit affair and ultimate union... or does it? When romantic bliss is dashed by cruel fate, the silver-haired doctor attempts to defy the fates, and like Orpheus, retrieve his love from the clutches of death!
