Richard had dreams of being a artist, a painter. Anna wants him to give up his silly dreams and keep his job as a corporate drone, to provide for her with stability and security. When Richard's portfolio is seen by a prominent art gallery, they want to do a show of his work. Anna manipulates Richard into turning the offer down. When Richard happens to be present during a convenience store robbery, and proves himself a hero, he sees himself in a new light. He sees himself as worthy and risks his relationship with Anna to do the gallery show. Who's dreams will win out?

The Writer: J.E. Ellis

I'm a published novelist (“The Essence of Humanity,” “The Hordes of Rage”) and produced screenwriter (“A Glimpse of Heaven and a Taste of Hell,” “The Harvesters”). Working, always working on more projects! Also, working a full-time job (30 years a truck driver). I don't know why I put this in, but people seem to be impressed by it. Maybe more than by my writing! :) I can't think of anything else to put in this bio - I guess I suck at writing about myself. Go to bio
