Writer Statement

This story of Natasha, an immigrant, dreaming and hoping of coming to America, is my story, embellished a lot. I am from Sault Ste. Marie, Canada. A remote town with a population of about 10,000 people. The fictitious 4th world country of "Crapistan" is based on this small remote town. Since I was a little girl I dreamed of coming to America and living the American dream. I would do anything to come and live in America. Everything seemed better in America. I came from a family that didn't have much so I worked very hard since I was 15 years old, with the single ( desperate) dream of coming to America. I had stars in my eyes and knew I would have a better life in America, if I could just get there. This is the immigrants story shared by many, and achieved by few. This is a high concept, universal, female driven, madcap, farce comedy :) Thank you for taking the time to read our screenplay :)
