A SACRIFICE TO THE GOD OF THE BLUES (Short Screenplay)

An impressionable young man struggles to make sense of the alternating good and bad advice he receives from a much older friend as they travel through the heart of Mexican drug territory on a cursed trip to a remote Pacific coast beach.

*Based on Jonathan LaPoma’s short story of the same title that appeared in the November 2014 issue of 34thParallel Magazine.
