Local Charlotte Filmmaker Deleon Rogers to Release Latest Movie for Free

The trailer was recently release, which can be seen at the following link: ( Deleon, who’s passion is telling stories, wanted to produce a film to give back to his Charlotte community, and chose to offer his movie for free, solely for entertainment purposes. It features a local cast and crew so as to showcase the local talent, which he hopes continues trying to become the "Hollywood of the east coast."

The synopsis of the movie is as follows:

On their 39th wedding anniversary, Johnathan (Brian Daye) and Charlotte (Lee Freeman) celebrate with family and friends as they dance to their wedding song. Unfortunately, the festivities are cut short as fate intervenes, and Johnathan is rushed to the hospital, where he is diagnosed with a brain tumor.

Meanwhile, their daughter Stephany (Sheena Maria) is caught in the act of infidelity by her husband George (Alex Phipps) and is forced to move back in with her parents.

Johnathan is now torn between the decision of having the tumor removed, thus erasing his entire memory, or allowing the tumor to continue to grow and eventually kill him.
