Fridden Hills is a hard-edged "feel-pain" motion picture play that mixes Shakespearian plots with Kubrickian visuals. The story is set in the small city called Fridden Hills (fictitious), an upper-middle class suburban neighborhood of Atlanta, GA. Ibrahim Khan is the head of local mosque, and spiritual leader of Muslim community in the city. He's a Pakistani immigrant who keeps his personal life and his family within strict codes of Islamic faith, not allowing any "bad influence" from the outside world. His next-door neighbor is Thomas Herrmahn, a very conservative Christian rightist who heads local Protestant Church. He tries to keep his family on "Jesus' path", suppressing and hiding anything that could interfere with his doctrine. The neighbors dislike each other and don't have any "touch-points", except for a stretch of land and trees behind their large houses... or do they? Ibrahim's teenage daughter Rabiya and Thomas' 18-year-old son William are in love! It's a very pure, innocent, and - secret relationship between two kids who oppose their families' conservative values. The problems emerge when William decides to join Marines, despite his family's opposition, and he ends up in the hills of Afghanistan. Meanwhile, Ibrahim is busy arranging an Islamic marriage for his daughter. Six months later William comes back - "armed with PTSD and an engagement ring". He's determined to reconnect with Rabiya, but now he must face a set of new challenges, as well as his own internal issues... The story explores love and hate - two extreme and very opposite human feelings. It's a fresh and provocative take on Romeo and Juliet, filled with modern socio-political issues and controversies, extremism, sexual taboos, and religious hypocrisy. Think of American Beauty, Crash, Full Metal Jacket, American History X... the films that ultimately polarize the audiences, but at the same time - the films that deliver that “knock-out punch”, without holding back! This (yet to be produced film) script does deliver a “knock-out” punch - straight to reader's (viewer's) heart. Beware… and enjoy.
