Ms. Hatcher took this project a step further and wrote a screenplay called "Miracle Child"
Logline: When a , a fed-up, burn-out, NYC teacher leaves the classroom after the death of her eight year-old son in a gang cross-fire. She quits her job and begins home schooling a youngster the system has given up on. She opens her heart up to the boy and struggles to rescue him from his violent drug addicted mother.
I see this project as a collaborative opportunity for investors, producers and a vessel for our youth to work creativity together towards a vision.
