Chocolate

CHOCOLATE (Thiago Dadalt, 22 mins, CA) A suburban housewife and mother suddenly finds herself homeless and lost in downtown Los Angeles. A beautiful story of family and hope. CHOCOLATE talks about a housewife who became homeless in downtown Los Angeles. She developed an early onset of Alzheimer’s, a very scary condition that affects more than 200 thousand people in the US and it’s growing worldwide. Thiago Dadalt (writer/director) initially wrote as fictional story and interesting enough, soon after he finished the first cut of the film, he discovered about Nancy Paulikas, a 55 year old woman, who has been missing for over 6 months in the streets of L.A. She has the same condition as the character on the film. You can get more information about Nancy on www.facebook.com/nancyismissing
