Plays I'd Like to See

Phillip Marlowe meets José Arcadio Buendía.

Place: Cuba
Time: 1959

A romantic self styles private detective hunts the trail of a young cuban girl who has been lost in the seedy underground of cuban sex trade. Her family desperately wants to find her before they attempt to flee the communist regime.

The private detective who has spent th bulk of his career chasing photos of mistresses and cuckholds, finds himself out of his element facing potential paranormal forces.

He thinks he's trying to track down a girl and her pimp, but the ultimate antagonist of this tale might be something much more sinister.

This is an idea...just a leaping point for a story I am trying to formulate. I have always had a fascination with American Noir and Latino Magic Realism. I would love if the Mammals couold bring these two genres together in a meaningful way.
