Logline: 
When a young girl and her mother move to a small town to escape an abusive situation. Her friendship with a mysterious Viking awakens her inner Valkyrie and all that it entails.
Synopsis/Details: 

PITCH
KARA, a quintessential example of a mini riddle, wrapped in imagination. After suffering from abuse at the hands of her father, Kara and her mother retreat to a quaint little town called Ravensong; where ravens rule the square, a Norse God owns the town and life is full of thunder and lightning.

SYNOPSIS
KARA, a precocious child with a hidden life-altering reality and her mother, EMILY, a single mother, settle into the small-town life of Ravensong with ease, thanks in part to their new friend, ODIN, an eccentric, well-dressed, one-eyed gentleman full of mystery.

MIKE, the abusive father, arrives late one night, drunk and ready to fight. Emily is unable to stop him at the door. Threats, aggression and tension escalate to such a level that Kara's fear releases uncontrollable weather conditions that only Odin can control.

Giving of one's eye in exchange for wisdom has helped Odin plan his destiny with Emily, but his spiritual connection to Kara is a pleasant surprise, even by godly standards. Wise beyond his years, Odin immediately identifies the transmigration of Kara as his most adored Valkyrie incarnate and as her ability surfaces in stressful situations he begins to share his skills and wisdom, helping her to crush her fear and transform into the warrior he knows her to be.

Odin invites the girls on a hiking trip to further solidify his relationship with Emily and to teach Kara how to control her inner Valkyrie, but during the hike, a situation puts Emily’s life in peril and forces Kara to face her fears and use her powers to help Odin save her mother.

Emily believes she has struck a deal with Mike to be out of their life for good, but when he stalks them both looking for an opportunity to kidnap Kara, he comes face-to-face with his daughter on a more godly level.

Odin embraces his new-found happiness with Emily and Kara and he gives to Kara the one thing he feels will help her heal her fears; justice.

The Writer: Teresa Barber

Born and bred in Mississippi, raised in Virginia, and aged in Florida. My life, in-and-of-itself, is full of BIG SCREEN moments and my passion comes from the world around me, simply expressed in my photography and writing. My adventure in writing began in 2007 when I became a published author. Now, in my silver years, I'm anxious to step things up a notch. In 2019 I began my screenwriting journey and completed three feature screenplays, with many more in the works. My advice to anyone willing to listen? If your dreams don't scare you...dream bigger. ***House Rule selected SEMIFINALIST Sci-Fi / Fantasy category Top 25 in the 2020 Creative Screenwriting Screenplay Competition.*** ***... Go to bio
