Co-Writer of the feature screenplay adaptation of Guy Garcia's Skin Deep. This socially aware, neo-noir, traces the journey of a Mexican-American man who struggles to reconcile two cultural identities and the mystery of his own origins. Having climbed to the pinnacle of the white-collar corporate establishment, the Harvard-educated Hispanic attorney travels home from New York City to the East LA barrio, and becomes enmeshed in a treacherous web of religion, immigration and class-conflict. As he hunts for a lost immigrant girl involved in a political scandal, he must rediscover the meaning of friendship, family and personal sacrifice.
