Novel-Script Writers’ Development Project: Wonder Women

Written by Gabriella Pinto

Two sisters, two different lives, and one shared history. While preparing for a children’s super-hero party, Hannah and Tamara skirt around their own roles in the family, and the denial, guilt and truth that comes with learning about loss.
