Development Pitch

This is a story, how lifelong friendships shape our lives and mold who we become. It begs the question, how far is too far? Do our secrets keep us captive? Or does the keeper of the tale untold truly hold the power? A powerful story, that reaches out from a place of poverty, where an unwritten code was the rule. A place where friendships are made, cradle to the grave! The greeting was, "Who loves you Brother" with a pound to the chest over the heart. All understood this means you will stand with me to the end. Through heartbreak, struggle, even death, yours or others. A brother is a brother is a brother. Everyone has a little piece tattooed on their chest and etched in their hearts. It's a place some will leave, some will try to leave, some will dream of leaving. This is a story from the Straits, remembering the ones who did dream of leaving and ultimately did. Far too young, none too innocent, and stone cold dead.
