Download – The Legend of KindHeart LionHeart

       On May 24th, 1997 (Nikki’s birthday) Sandy sees Nikki for the first time ever in the Paris airport and he believes he has seen his soul mate.   He fumbles a croissant as he gets up to try to speak with her and by the time he picks it up she is gone presumably never to be seen again.  He searches the airport to no avail.  His only hope is that she is on the same flight to Miami. He watches each passenger board but no Nikki. The stewardess announces there is one more passenger coming and to hold the door.  He is sure it is her.  The passenger arrives and it is not her and the door slams shut.  In a sense of panic he gets up to ask the stewardess to leave the closed plane.  As he gets up to do so he sees her sitting 9 rows back on the aisle and sits back down.  They meet that day and exchange beliefs and intimate details of their lives.  He is writing a book and inserts her in as the main female character.  After this special shared day in route from Paris to Miami they do not see or hear from each other for 12 years.

After reuniting 12 years later the two develop a friendship and a working partnership. The story then takes some incredible dramatic turns which eventually has Sandy reincarnated after death as a Dolphin.  The story actually begins with Sandy the Dolphin trying to get Nikki’s attention as she teaches a class bay side in Florida.  When his fellow dolphins ask him why is he trying so hard to get that lady’s attention.  He then goes into the long narration of his previous human life and how he came to be in that spot. The story of the human life provides lessons in spirituality, joy, love, the power of gratitude as well as bootstrapping entrepreneurship, innovation and a new political order. This is more than anything a love story that attempts to transcend the ultimate obstacle of death but it is also an adventure text that brings life lessons in nearly each and every page.  No one will leave this book without a mark being left on their life.  Early on, Sandy claims that theirs may be either a tragedy or a love story, depending on the perspective. Ultimately, the judgment is up to readers, be they cynics or romantics. For the latter, this will be a weeper.

First Screenplay I

We open on the aqua blue waters of Biscayne Bay in Miami with a pod of Dolphins skipping across and under the water.  They speak to each other as they have fun playing games and jumping.  One little dolphin Scotty is a trouble making kid and has to be pulled into shape by his mother.  Sandy expresses how joyful it is to be a dolphin and to be alive on this great day as he leaps with a spin over the bay.
Meanwhile, in an alarm clock goes off in a condominium overlooking the bay.  The date is May 24th and the time is 6:00am.  Stunningly beautiful Nikki awakens in her pink pajamas.  She looks out the window and sees the pod of dolphins are hopping and playing in the background.  She stretches and smiles.  She looks back at the date on the clock with great emphasis and she points her finger at May 24th as she jumps up to get dressed for work.
Nikki gets a text from her Mom and Dad.  Happy Birthday!  She then rips May 25th off the refrigerator calendar to unveil May 24th and begins to cry.  Then she gets text from Gregor Smiley “A pink Ferrari with a red ribbon is waiting for you if you just say yes to my invitation to marriage.”  Nikki shakes her head in disgust and throws her phone on top of the Miami Herald paper on her kitchen counter.
Nikki is then in front of her 6th grade class.  She asks forgiveness at the beginning of class to veer off the normal lesson plan and she goes on to explain that she wishes to teach some lessons she learned from her last husband about the importance of living with gratitude and joy everyday and how finding your sense of purpose in life energizes you.
The class ends.  The kids are anxious to get outside for recess.  Right at the moment the recess bell rings a downpour starts.  The kids go to the window and look out with sadness and the song Lemon Tree plays.
The rain soon breaks and everyone rushes outside grateful to have some time to play.  Nikki proceeds to go on a reflective walk on the beach on the bay.
A single Dolphin is leaping in the air diving into the water and slapping it’s tail.  Nikki barely looks up.  She is deep in thought as she has her head down as she walks the beach.
The Dolphin that was leaping goes under water and the other dolphins around him in the pod gather around him.  They ask “Why are you trying so hard to get that lady’s attention?”.  He replies “Do you really want to know?”  They reply back “Yes, tell us, what is it about her that is so special to warrant so much effort?”
Sandy then goes into the story of how he and Nikki first met on plane in route from Paris to Miami 17 years ago on May 24th of 1997, her birthday.
