Norma's Sun

This Full Feature, Female Character and Leading Lady Driven Narrative is about the life of Norma and her family history of struggle to become the Parent of a child with needs beyond any comprehension, only to find in the end an ending that will touch your core. Born into a life of isolation and pain with the graphic burden of surgical manipulation to function, walk and survive in a world of normalcy. The iconic image inspires still today and will present a platform for an audience into a never before filmed area of life inside a family struggling to accept reason. "Never in our silent moments of illusion do we sense the dark parallel that lives beside us. Nor do we suspect the carrier."

"A Wonderful commentary on the very things that make us all human" "Brave honesty of confession, makes the book unique" "Touching story, full of hope" "Eloquent, stirring and emotional, inspirational to the courageous" The story is not only convincingly true, but will rivet the reader with its genuine and unassuming pathos.

This Adaptation is a memoir that came from the depths of one man's struggle to become a predefined member of a social mold which was never cast. A confinement that would later serve to encapsulate, isolate and establish a prototype of life not understood or sought by those watching. Blessing, punishment or choice is a position each is given and though not all will genesis into a full heart, most can adapt through perseverance. Yet you will question on how or who provided the seed to a life of strife. Further, worth following.

Writer Biography

My name is Kris Courtney, as you will read, my life is about ability and benevolence, and I am actively, humbly and sincere in my search for a champion to believe! I am submitting a blank slate, powerful Best Seller and an Artist View willing to become greater than the image in transparency in support of others, I am eager to speak with you! I suspect you will be moved and perhaps find yourself emotionally challenged by the strength of this message. In 2014, I wrote the initial working draft screenplay and am completely prepared to align in theme with a team of coverage, option and production. Below is that description which parallels the book and concludes in story at a very translucent ending of spiritual reveal.

Writer Statement

Miraculous tale of how a boy, born into unimaginable physical and emotional pain and destined to be a misfit, finds his way in a world of "others." Few could survive so many torturous years of surgical intervention and a ensuing lifelong struggle with drugs and alcohol addiction and come out ahead. This moving tale reveals not only the struggle and heartrending elements of generational lives "gone wrong," but also the love and growth of a human being overcoming the odds and determined to find a way to live life to the fullest. Based on a true story, the author's unapologetic prose prompts enduring ethical questions and makes a gripping, personal read. Norma Jean's Sun is painfully reflective yet ultimately hopeful, a story told through the eyes of a boy who believes he has been mistakenly born into the world and a man who conquers physical and emotional injustice--and thrives. The reader will be challenged to answer the difficult questions of right and wrong as they may apply to his or her own life. It is clear that it is the hope of this author that the reader's conclusions will lead to a more fulfilled view of the "parallel beauty that lives just beneath the surface for us all."

Born with multiple birth defects, amputations and the isolation of pain, my life began with the enduring of 20 surgeries to function, walk & survive in a world of normalcy.

Ultimately, percentage proceeds and benefits from this Film will be allocated and endorsing those of Colon Cancer, St Judes and the Riley's Children hospital along with the Ruth Lyons Foundation. All of which either touched my life directly or in some capacity, improved the quality of my family’s life. I am a Gentleman with limited reach in the entertainment and production industries. However, once you read the memoir, Norma Jean’s Sun and review all the Fan Support information, I challenge you to not become equally engaged and emotionally moved!

Thank you, I look forward to your response.
