The Pledge

by Frank D’Ambra

Tony Terranova and Jerry Toscano have been lifelong friends for almost thirty years. In an incident when they were kids, on a day they became blood brothers, Tony made a PLEDGE to Jerry that he would never deny a favor to him for as long as they live. Jerry never had any need to ask a favor of Tony, but upon finding out he is terminal and Tony finding out about his situation, he decides to call in a favor off The Pledge Tony made to him, in which Tony is conflicted in fulfilling Jerry’s request.

About the Author

ABOUT THE AUTHOR Frank V. D?Ambra ? Writer- Producer-Director Frank V. D?Ambra was born and raised in New York City in the Bronx in April of 1954. Growing up, Frank enjoyed Movies and Music and love playing sports and his New York teams The Yankees and Football Giants and even had a tryout for the Giants in the late 1970’s In college at CCNY, Frank took advice from one of his JHS teachers, Miss Cerza and pursued creative writing courses. Frank?s first written work was a screenplay which came about after his last failed attempt to make The New York Giants football team in a tryout. The screenplay was titled The Invincible Summer, an inspirational work from Albert Camus about an unlikely football hero who leads an expansion New York football team into the Super Bowl under a cloud of suspicion. Through the 80?s and 90?s Frank kept writing while also acting in off Broadway Plays and amateur films. While gaining experience in amateur and low budget films, a desire emerged to become a filmmaker since Frank felt acting wasn?t for him and that the behind the scenes creative process was more suited to him. Frank also wanted to try his hand at writing Novels and had some success with his first Novel Direct Line with a Serial Killer in which he produced, directed and wrote the commercial that promoted the Novel in 2001. Frank has amassed over 20 screenplays and since is looking to put together a film production company so he can make his own independent quality films.
