A Detour to Mexico is an unforgettable tale about the miracle of love. Written for a film, the screenplay revolves around the Langstons, a talented family of musicians who're traveling to Mexico for an international talent competition. The rivalry, however, starts before they even leave home. Kim, the 17-year-old song writer and singer in the group, always shares an important message in her love ballads. But, now she has a mutiny on her hands as her brother tries to upstage her with his fiery new hip-hop music. Still, there's a much greater crisis that's looming, as Kim's faith in her own song is shaken. It's only the beginning of a wild journey filled with unexpected challenges that threaten to sabotage their performance, at least, until the arrival of an uninvited 'angel.'
About the Authors
In 2005, Pamela Sherrod was introduced to Altovise Davis to help write her autobiography.
Altovise was married for twenty years to the famous Rat Pack star, Sammy Davis, Jr., and lived a highly-profiled lifestyle which was later characterized as a "rags-to-riches-to-rags" experience.
The two women, however, put the autobiography aside to write a story for youth which would hopefully inspire them to strive for greatness in their lives. Part of their goal was to fulfill a request made by Altovise's husband before he died.
Sammy Davis, Jr. had started performing when he was only four years old, and never attended school. He couldn't read or write until he was an adult and had always regretted it. Sammy asked Altovise to reach out to young people and stress the importance of getting an education.
Pamela wanted to share stories of miracles to inspire young people and offer them encouragement.
Together, the two women set out to accomplish this by writing books and creating entertaining family films. They eventually formed Lil' SamHat Productions to bring their characters to the silver screen. Following Altovise's death, Pamela reorganized the company and renamed it RisingStar31.
In A Detour to Mexico, their first screenplay, a dazzling cast of characters embark on an exciting journey that leads to an unforgettable outcome.
