Synopsis:

“The Awakening of Myra Thomas”

It is in the midst of the ruthless slave trade during the early eighteen hundreds. MYRA THOMAS, a Negro slave woman and her long time love JOHNNY LEE, set out on a daring escape into the wooded vacant area near their master’s plantation. After a night of running fiercely in the intense heat they are soon captured and killed by lynching.

It is in the middle of the night in the present. Suddenly, KAREN BURNS, a professional white lady starts screaming. Her husband DONALD BURNS jumps up and immediately wakes Karen up. Karen frantically tells her husband that she had been raped by a faceless man that was threatening to kill her. The next day Karen is mysteriously being followed by a strange black woman in early American historical clothing.

Soon after this Karen experiences bizarre bloody beatings from an invisible force. Karen is told by her husband, sons and co-workers that she has been blacking out, forgetting who they are and walking around talking in a strange southern dialect.

Visits to her family doctor and psychiatrist gives Karen no relief.. Karen reluctantly visits SHEILA BRADFORD, a psychic. Sheila tells Karen that she is remembering experiences from her past life as Myra, a Negro slave. Karen’s condition becomes so mentally disturbing that most of the time she no longer remembers her present day identity. She is soon committed into a mental hospital. More than a year passes before Sheila Bradford is able to convince Myra, that she has a new body and a new identity. After being released from the mental hospital Karen’s conscious memory soon returns briefly. The psychic Sheila, convinces Karen to return to the land Myra died on more than a century ago in order to finally free herself from her agonizing condition.

Thanks for reminding me to read the rules. I was very excited that you had a script market place. I did everything the rules said except for adding the attachment. When I went to update my post in order to add the additional information required, their was no where for me t add the attachment. Your video shows you how when you first create the new post but not after post has already been created and posted. So I can't figure how to add the attachment now unless I just recreate a new post and add an attachment. I would greatly appreciate if you would email me back and advise me on what to do.
