Based on a true story, this screenplay is rather like a combination of Sleeping with the Enemy meets The Pursuit of Happyness.
In a time where there were no laws to protect battered woman, one single mother chooses to defy the laws and flee with her children to safety. Living with her children in her car for more then 5 years, she faces atrocities scarier than the life she left behind.
Perhaps she should have killed her husband when she had the chance. Life behind bars would have been so much easier.
Please provide a sample of your writing in a comparable genre such as biography, drama, true crime. Perhaps a log line or two as well as a cover letter.
