Adi Alfa and Eric Myers are more than just your aspiring an actress and film director. The talented duo are happily engaged and form part of what is a fast growing, award winning production company Bosss Media.
“A Love that Transcends”
This is not your traditional love story. For one it is more of a platonic love between two young women, and secondly, it is a love so powerful it transcends anything on this earth. When Harriet and Phoenix, two girls from Liverpool, England are both found abandoned by their parents as babies, they believe it to be fate that they found each other when they did. Growing up in a children’s home where they are sexually abused and mistreated, for them they had only one escape…each other. In a twisted stroke of fate, everything they ever believed in is threatened to be lost forever, how far will they go restore their unique bond?
This is the first penned and produced a movie by writer and actress Adi Alfa, and London-based production company, Bosss media. After a very successful Kick Starter campaign the movie had financial aid from the public and is now one of Bosss media’s highly anticipated projects. The film has now been submitted to several festivals across the UK and big international festivals also.
