In this “Behind the Screenplay” post, we’re letting you know a little more about the “The Moment Has Gone” screenplay.
Cy Perrottet, a socially inept novelist, confronts the killer of his wife, Naomi, ten years after the killer’s sentencing.
Naomi was murdered by Ludvik Abijah at the age of 24 in what was deemed to be an accident, but it wasn’t. He was charged with fleeing the scene and manslaughter on an otherwise clean record.
Through Ludvik’s years in prison, he sought redemption by telling Cy the truth. It still makes no sense to Naomi’s family, who resent the notion that he’s even considering meeting Ludvik.

The possibility of forgiveness. After watching tens of examples of news segments or documentaries in which someone forgives a person or confronts a person about an unconscionable act and how they can achieve any form of closure, Cy and his situation were born.
