This project shines a light on brain cancer, the strength of faith and new medical solutions that will ultimately extend the protagonist life in a touching and uplifting tale we have titled, MOON OVER SORRENTO, a family dramatic journey about a mother and wife, Monica, her daughters, and her husband, that even with a tragedy looming. Monica is able to keep the family together by staying positive and strong. Her husband and her daughters learn the value of family and weather the storm to live with the new reality.
As the project is funded, our team and the message can continue with the focus of showcasing a great side of Tampa, Clearwater, and St. Petersburg, Florida, and Sorrento, Italy, and cancer research.

MOON OVER SORRENTO is a quirky comedic drama about a spirited family, centered around Monica, a wife to Roger, and mother to Sarah and Nikki, including their lovable chihuahua, Rocco. The kids are grown and still living at home, and the marriage seems to be convenient, and even a bit stale. A niece’s wedding invitation in Sorrento, Italy, where she’s originally from, is tacked to the fridge. Monica is excited to go, but Roger has his sights on business. Not only does he think he can make it, he doesn’t realize just how important it is to Monica, yet, how she needs to see Italy again. Monica throws herself into doing what she always wanted to do but never did because she was busy with her family, that is, to design clothing. All the while, her health is deteriorating. She’s fainting and feeling sick, more and more. Monica sees a doctor, and is diagnosed as having a brain tumor. Instead of falling into depression she fights to stay positive, especially after Roger and the kids find out. Monica’s strength and resilience brings the family unit even closer to cope with the new reality, all the while, she rages on to finish that wedding dress. Putting family first, Roger steps back from his business a little, and buys the four tickets. They travel to Italy with a host of comedic “fish out of water” comedic mishaps happen as they do, with Roger getting wasted on the plane, to the family avoiding a pickpocket team, to renting an undersized car that doesn’t fit them and with the wedding dress, to the play with the overzealous Italian boys and men after Sarah and Nikki, to Rocco falling in love, and then, Monica’s old boyfriend shows up. She closes that door properly, this time, and teaches him a lesson in being a gentleman. Then, after the great trip, the family returns to Tampa to face the music. They discover new medical treatments, and in the midst of a looming tragedy, their faith, humor and love draw the family closer, in an heartwarming story about living well, no matter the reality.
Monica (40-50 something) is a dynamic and funny lady, a mother and wife, with two girls, Sarah and Nikki. She’s on a quest to finish to take the family to Sorrento, Italy with the wedding dress she wants to design for her niece, but Roger seems to be an obstacle. Monica has never been more frustrated. She is diagnosed with cancer. This enhances it all.
Roger (40-50 something) is in finance, successful, and always flying somewhere or entertaining his clients. He works too much and is obviously way less appreciative of Monica then he should be so it is affecting the marriage. He does redeem himself but not until after he hears of the diagnosis.
Nikki (early 20s) is the older of the two girls in the family. She has a party streak in her and it shows. There’s a conflict with her mom always. Nikki is devastated by her parent’s relationship. She’s a good girl wants to be bad. She actually is affected deeply by it all. She softens when her mother diagnosed and does a 360.
Sarah (late teens) is the youngest of the two girls. She is together much more than Nikki. She is super dedicated to college, a great student and not a partier like her sister. She is torn between falling in love with Marco and not due to the situation with her mother. Sarah comes on strong helping her older sister deal with it all.
Marco (early 20s) is an Italian American guy with eyes for Sarah. He stops at nothing to pursue her. He’s a good looking young with a lot of ambition to help his family build a wine business.
Alexa (40-50 something) is one of Monica’s best friends, real estate agent like Monica. She’s a gregarious fun loving potent sort with a million things going on at once. She is the one saves Monica’s life. She’s always there for her.
Leo (early 20s) is Nikki’s boyfriend or friend, nobody knows but Leo and Nikki but actuality, he is gay without much of a home. He is Nikki’s best friend.
Nonna (80s) is a little senile, and then she’s all there. She still echoes for her deceased husband’s friend.
Dr. Roberts (30s) is a serious man with raw sense of dry humor. He is Monica’s doctor, who needs to get her through the treatments and to live the longest life she can.
Christoff (40s) is a Roger’s partner in the firm. He seems to have it out for Roger until he realizes the tough time Roger is having.
MOON OVER SORRENTO is a quirky comedic drama about a spirited family living in Tampa, Florida, who confronts a pending tragedy with love, unity and strength. This type of content is a perfect media vehicle for branding opportunities due to the palatible story content about family values and universal theme of living to be the best we can be. Here we have the daughter, Sarah wearing a wedding dress designed by Monica, so in the process, we can integrate products and servicing within the story, stating where the dress is from using the vehicle to cut into a short spot that can be used co-branding with film.
