Do you know where you are is a Movie script I wrote with the help of my sister and a friend. I posted the script on movie screen play site and received a lot of criticism. Being my first script, this was expected. So, instead of fixing it I have moved onto another movie (part of the series) because this story is done (complete in my eyes). If someone were to write it into the proper form, either for a book, movie, or screenplay. That would be great just contact me first! I will post this script in 6 parts. Enjoy Do you know where you are By SonnyB, Madness, and Raveena.
