“Lucky & Rich has all the hallmarks of the next “Before Sunrise” or Nick and Norah. It’s a great piece.” A UK Sales Agent
“Lucky & Rich is a touching story. I was thoroughly engaged as the story unfolded, laughing out loud at times.” Stella Scott. Scion Films
“This is a beautifully crafted script. It was a pleasure to read something of such truly touching compassion and honesty (a rare thing).” Jamie Giles. Bankside Films.
“A 24 hour love story between a Czech prostitute called Lucky and a homeless traveller named Rich.”
When Lucky bangs into Rich, a sick looking New Zealand bum late one night on a train in Prague, the connection is instant and obvious; except she doesn’t want to have anything to do with him. But there is something irrepressible about Rich and he won’t take no for an answer. When Lucky tries to leave she is rounded up by Scrap; Rich’s 3-legged dog, and she and Rich end up fighting, laughing and falling in love all over this ancient city.
After a bad falling out, Lucky storms off to the red light district and buys a gun; we don’t know why. Eventually reunited, they buy flash threads from a charity shop (he has money?) and they go on a date to the most exclusive restaurant in Prague.
As they slow dance to smooth jazz, Rich tells Lucky his story… he was going somewhere very bad before they met on the train last night. But so was she, and now she has a gun and she must leave and get on the next train to Haje.
“I wept at the end of this story. Here is a film which must be made so we must pray for backers who will commit to it for it’s sake, and who will not be offended by it’s rough content, language and texture.” Don Williams. Author and Theologian
“This off beat love story works because you’ve pushed the envelope between the two characters. The audience will be rooting for the characters, which is always a good thing.” Peter Frankovich. Former VP of Development CBS TV
