The Fall of Abel
Daniel’s historical narrative epic script, The Fall of Abel, is currently being optioned for film rights.
“Go from your country and your kindred and your father’s house to the land that I will show you. I will make of you a great nation, and I will bless you, and make your name great, so that you will be a blessing. I will bless those who bless you, and the one who curses you I will curse; and in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.”
One brother sworn to the freedom of an ancient Irish homeland and a young American Republic, another brother bound to the British Empire and a family dynasty. Their two lives, loyalties and loves at odds with each other where only one can prevail.
Out of the inevitable conflict to come, both bloodlines are forever marked by the descent from their Irish Eden to the hell of the Great Famine. It carries them across the Atlantic once more in the greatest exodus of the industrial age and brings their line to a final reckoning during the carnage of the American Civil War where redemption awaits.
