Bonnie Pureheart Banner

Tossed on a stormy sea, a Sixteenth Century Spanish treasure ship wrecks on Florida's Gulf Coast. Desperate, the officers and crew attempt to carry two tons of silver coins overland to safety.

They never get there.

Instead, they are attacked by their dreaded Calusa Indian enemies led by a powerful shaman-chief. Terrified, the sailors drop boxes and boxes of coins, and run for their lives!

Nearly five centuries later, the land is treatened by developers who want to buy it, bulldoze the jungle and build condominiums. The shaman-chief's ghost doesn't like that. He's been haunting the place all this time, and doesn't want noisy neighbors.

What's a poor ghost to do?

Help suddenly appears in the form of a young professional couple, who love to spend their spare time walking and communing with nature in that very place. They don't want to see the place developed, either.

The ghost hatches an elaborate plan to lead the couple to the treasure so they can out-bid the developers, and set up a nature preserve.

Watch this space for progress as we make this hilarious paranormal comedy. Coming to a screen near you in the Fall of 2015.
