See, I can't remember the 60's, but I've researched my script thoroughly because I can't remember what... wait, what am I doing?
"My script is a teen to senior thrill ride, it celebrates youth, rebellion and dreams. Amid the comedy, passion and devastation of an era crashing down, two buddies face their ultimate sacrifice for their beliefs, and each other."
One boy grows up in the fifties fallout from his communist parents’ paranoia, persecution and disillusionment. His best friend, age 11, sends his father to jail. In the sixties, just when he thinks scary times are behind him, and it’s safe to be cynical and pursue an MBA, his friends and lover become the most wanted and dangerous radicals on campus. Facing severe lifetime consequences, with a premium on loyalty, he must choose between his best friend, his lover or his own future.
Someone said, 'If you remember the sixties, you weren’t there.' Those of us involved, freaks or straights, were often tunnel visionaries. This 4Q screenplay culminates years of extensive research. It’s a gut wrenching story of strange and turbulent times, from both sides."
