About this product
- DescriptionHow big can a media deal be? Can Hollywood improve the condition of humanity even a little bit, with a feel-good movie designed to reach every screen on the planet? Other People's Prayers tells the tale of a five powerful individuals who intend to make the biggest movie ever, meant to inspire the entire world with hope. The result, however, is the murder of one of the movie's champions. There's Allyn, the New York society girl who's w a producer; Okeyo, the Nigerian-Swiss priest who inherits both his mother's sacred calling and his father's fortune; and John, the investor who keeps the movie's young star wrapped around his finger. Continuing the story begun in Stephen Greco's The Culling - of John Statella, the handsome, seductive panhandler-turned-world-class financial mogul - Other People's Prayers tells of a dream gone wrong. As John attempts to use the empire he took over to influence the movie meant to change the world, he discovers himself opposed to Allyn, the very person who brought him into the deal in the first place. Set in the fast-paced media capitals of New York and Los Angeles, with glimpses into the tranquil garden of a ruined synagogue and a massive rally in a Berlin arena, Other People's Prayers asks whether good intentions can scale up via media projects of unprecedented scope, to do good on a planetary scale.
