Through Laura's Eyes is based on a one time encounter I had with a street teen. She approached my car and washed my windshield. There was something about her sincere smile that made me want to find out more about her and others on the street. I at first was going to make a documentary, but knew it would be too time consuming. I instead opted to create my "Laura" on what could have been her story and her future. I never did see my "Laura" again, but hold her memory in this screenplay.
