DAD DOESN'T DANCE

Genre: Drama
Nora Brown

A fateful quest. Dubious characters. Her biological father. Our heroine crosses the continent from the wilds of Winnipeg to the haze of Hollywood as she encounters five mysterious men and the clues they reveal. She had lived without a past. An infidelity caused her to look at her life, leading to the revelation of the existence of a biological father. As she found clues, the mystery unfolded, until she faced her BioDad's door in Hollywood. Did she have the courage to knock?

 

“Before I knew this story existed, I always questioned my own identity,” stated Nora Brown. “I escaped from life with my mother to the ballet stage, where I truly knew who I was and why I was there; that was my real world, and I loved it deeply.  As I made up before the performance, I didn’t know that dark haired woman in the mirror.  The make-up finished, I knew the image.  I was that dancer, that character in the ballet being danced that night.  On stage, I felt close to God, to the audience, to the other dancers, to myself.”
