EPIE & THE MOONMAN
FEATURE FILM IN DELVELOPMENT
Screenplay Written by Vanessa Perdriau & Larry Frenzel
Epie and the Moonman is a heart-warming drama which begins when Epiphany Serrano (17), a feisty, intelligent teen raised by a resentful single mom, makes a shocking discovery that ignites a mission to find her father and the truth about her past.
Forced to work by her overbearing mom, Epie finds herself in an after-school job caring for Norman Alvord (75), a cranky, recently widowed, retired NASA rocket scientist with heart trouble, who wants nothing to do with her. Their fiery exchanges spark an unlikely alliance and together they restore Norman’s prized Thunderbird, escape on a forbidden road-trip to meet Epie’s father and discover a life-changing friendship that forces each to confront the most broken parts of their lives and uncover hope for the future.
Full of heart and woven with humour, this life-affirming drama explores hopes, dreams, fatherhood, and how love transcends vast differences.
