Honey, Chocolate and Nerkles

Posted by

Some of you may know that I am an aspiring screenwriter. The other day, I showed my lecturer my blog. He highly recommended that I put my screenplay from last year up here for all the world to see, so here it is.

Honey, Chocolate and Nerkles

Honey, Chocolate and Nerkles is a short, fantasy film for children about a young pre-teen girl, who is trying to fit in with school, but she has cerebral palsy. She goes to a mainstream school and the children bully her for being different. She is also receiving a lot of questions from her younger brother who has started to notice how different she is to other people.

Pursued by her main bully, she falls through a portal into a world made of chocolate and sweets. There she has to learn to accept herself to free a small, winged creature known as a nerkle, and to return back home. By doing this, she finds out she has a talent of her own.

I feel that children the same age as my protagonist, Fiona, often feel like they cannot fit in and are an outcast, whether they have a disability or not. By writing this screenplay, I hope to show children that it is alright to be different because everyone is different, everyone has a gift and talent of their own.

Feel free to comment, contact me or share this. I would love to hear your thoughts.

    1. Thanks Prajakta. The script is on there too if you haven’t read it already.

      The Movie title was the last thing I thought of but it seemed to be the only one that would fit out of all my other ideas and I love it. 🙂
