A  young black child's life rests in the hands of an old racists man.

'The Say Fly' (short film version) was a FINALIST at the International Family Film Festival. It has since gained much interest into producing into a feature length film. We are currently in the process of raising funds to make this independent project a reality. The projected budget for the film is $300,000, a modest budget when compared to the average film budget in Hollywood. Yet the heart and soul of this film's endeavor is far more  valuable than its production price. The heart and soul of HUMANITY through this  feature version of The Sac Fly sets to pave an avenue to help reach people and impact our impact our future.

Palms tells the story of Solomon, a foster child in search of a forever home. His journey is filled with ups and downs as he searches for his heart.  The story has a personal meaning to the Director. In 2010, he and his wife adopted a little boy who was in foster care.  His story was one too often untold. With approximately over 500,000 children currently in foster care it was time a story such as theirs be told. From there, 'Palms' was born. Palms won wonderful reviews from national foster care organizations and was shown at the annual convention of the Southern California CASA's (Court Appointed Special Advocates), a national non-profit organization that provides court advocates for children in foster care. Palms also won Best Short Film at the 2013 International Film Festival.
