When a successful entrepreneur wakes up to being a victim of a hate crime, she begins to have startling recollection of her childhood stranger abduction, which her family denies.
Based on a true story.
Gina M. Garcia - Writer/ Director/Producer
Gina M. Garcia was born in Iran while her father was working for Air America, a division of the CIA. Air America shut its doors in 1975 and her family relocated to Orlando, Florida where she grew up with her three siblings. Her childhood differed from most children. In the fall of 1981, at the age of eight, she was abducted by a stranger in a Florida shopping mall. After being brutally attacked, she narrowly escaped by jumping out of a moving car and running for her life. In the back of her mind she had always questioned why she was the lucky one. After years of soul searching she felt compelled to start making a difference and believed the greatest media to do so was through film. So step-by-step she started learning the craft of film making, working at whatever opportunities came here way. Through the years Garcia has worked in the United States and Asia in all aspects of television and film creating commercials, television shows and short films. Most recently in the spring of 2009 she moved to the Philippines for six months to shoot her first feature film, Charlie’s Eye which she wrote, directed and produced. Ms. Garcia has numerous other life accomplishments: she spent three years in the Navy assigned to NATO; created various start-up companies that have been sold at a profit; and founded an alternative transportation company that is the second largest producer of Pedicabs in the United States. Garcia is also responsible for helping the City of Orlando receive 250 miles of bicycle lanes. She has cycled across the U.S. to raise money for AIDS research and also worked as a business consultant, helping many young entrepreneurs get their start. Ms. Garcia has always set the bar high because she is lucky to be alive.
