MAIN STREET: An Excerpt from ‘Wet Matches’…
On their way to visit Crystal’s parents, the Canadays’ rental Ford Escort slowly makes its way through Shallow Creek’s business district.
In the midst of colorful storefront windows, standing out is the boarded-up teen drop-in center cushioned between a laundromat and Middleton’s Drugstore.
The plywood enclosing the teen drop-in center is covered with large, spray-painted letters spelling ‘Go home’, ‘Get out of our town’ , ‘Wet Matches’, ect.
‘WET MATCHES’ is an inspiring, triumph-over-tragedy story about five homeless teens getting a second chance at a better life. ‘Wet Matches’ won the prestigious Quarter-Finals Prize at the 14th Annual Writers Network Screenplay and Fiction Competition in Los Angeles.
