Synopsis by Andrea LeVasseur
American independent filmmaker Adam Yaffe makes his writing and directing debut with the coming-of-age movie Book of Danny. Shot in the Maryland suburbs of Washington, D.C., the film follows teenage stoner Danny (Daniel Randell), who constantly gets in trouble while living with single mother Fritzi (Marcia Jean Kurtz). She sends him to live with his deadbeat dad Harry (Larry Block) and stepmother Monique (Elaina Erika Davis). At first, Danny is happy to assist in his father's latest money-making scheme involving leather goods manufacturing. However, he eventually wises to the deal and realizes the shady business plan for what it is. Book of Danny was shown at the 2003 Nantucket Film Festival.
