Birgit Syran Myaard's dramatic thriller was a finalist in the 2012 Creative World Awards screenwriting contest. The CWA reader wrote:
"This is an extremely strong story that effectively portrays the post 9/11 world from the unique perspective of a Muslim family. The familiar tragedy that befalls Ariana and her sister makes these characters instantly relatable. The story tastefully dealt with difficult and contemporary issues in a way which felt authentic. This is definitely a movie that makes you think. Beyond this, the story has a lot of action, suspense, and is thoroughly entertaining. This is a fantastic screenplay: original idea, interesting characters, and a gripping story with a great theme. Nice job!"
"In this story, 9/11 is handled so tastefully that this could be the perfect movie to begin exploring September 11th and all the after math. I expect this screenplay to do well, both in this contest and beyond."
One of ScreenwritingU's Most Recommended Writers of 2013, Ingram optioned his urban dance drama, Yankee Gal!, and coming-of-age sports drama, White Chocolate, to Lamont Cain of Hierarchy Pictures.
