Storyline

EMPIRE OF THE HEART is the story of a young family stranded in the slums of New York City during the Great Depression. Gentle, believable characters make the film heartwarming and enjoyable but it has drama from one scene to another. You can't wait to see what will happen next. Faith, love and courage see them through as they end up in upstate NY. Timely story given today's economic woes. Academy Award potential. Written by Marlene Mendoza
