I was commissioned by Writer/Director Mumtaz Yildirimlar, to come on board his supernatural thriller project, ‘My Guardian Angel’ in summer 2014. ‘My Guardian Angel’ is a taut ghost story, with themes of abuse and autism, and found a sales agent and was released in Summer 2016. It has also been serialized (2017).
What we fear is the only thing that will save us…. When 11 year old Hannah’s parents took her to a new school, they said it was to give her a new start. However, Hannah has autism, and although high functioning, is unable to speak. She also had a twin called Angel, but when she died, Hannah was forbidden to grieve by her abusive parents and punished when she sought comfort from her sister’s things. So now Hannah lives locked inside a silent life of despair, which she fears will soon end at the hands of her parents. However, when a knife keeps appearing under her pillow, and a voice that she thinks is inside her head, won’t leave her alone, Hannah begins to realize that she may have an ally not of this world – Could it be Angel who, from the ‘other side’, has come to seek justice for all the abuse she’s suffered? Although paralyzed by fear, can Hannah overcome it just enough to let Angel in?
