Story summary

My name is Elva NelsonHayes and I'm the producer of the "What's In A Name" movie which is based on my fist book, The UNNAMED. It's important for me to get this film out because it chronicle's a young girl, Opal's, quest for self identity as she comes of age amidst teenage feuding parents. She carries the pain of her heartbroken mother who intentionally named her after the wrong man. She carries the guilt of her womanizing father who abandoned her pregnant mother. She's wracked with the guilt of their fighting as she confuses loving one parent with betraying the other. She struggles to define her self through her polar opposite parents, neither of whom will tell her the truth of why she was misnamed.

This story addresses family relationships, fighting parents and family secrets that you see  from the child's perspective  and how they effects her identity.  This story has a lesson of redemption for every member of the family.

 We need your help to get this film made
