  1.                                MOON DUST



                           By Alysha Oravetz

    Synopsis: Hank Schultz, an ex NASA station director, wrestles with his life coming to an end.  Hank's family surrounds him, feeling an eerie presence since the passing of the astronaut, Edgar Mitchell. Jolene, Hank's grandaughter is determined to find out about the relationship he had with the Wernher Von Braun, the ex-Nazi rocket scientist that took Hitler to war and America to the Moon.

    This is a story of redemption, and the possible idea, that imagination through energy,  is our ultimate connection, our ultimate salvation, that can move us beyond realms, and beyond that.

    Henry (Hank) Schultz- Age 95. Former Representative of NASA and head of American tracking station Madrid, Spain.

    Jolene- Hank's granddaughter. 30 something. Compassionate and tired.

    Jeannie-a precise woman, to the point of neurosis. Hank's daughter, Jolene's mom. She is an exact chemist in the kitchen. 

    Marc-- A CNA. Freshman (a Plebe) at the Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland. 

    Theresa (Tree)--An overbearing woman. The younger sister of Jeannie.

    Edgar Mitchell- an astronaut that saw the moon in the Apollo 14 mission. Founder of the Noetic Institute of Science.  

    Wernher Von Braun- A German diplomat, a rocket scientist, a lover of women, an ex-employee of Hitler.

    Walt Whitman- An amazing poet, who also looks like the amazing scientist and thinks like Albert Einstein.
