Brief

These are the personal stories of faith and divine presence and testimonials of a woman who found in Jesus a way to deal with her problems and find profound happiness. One day, this woman, who could not have children, found a baby at the gate of her house that radiated heat and light. She took him home immediately and took care of him. Years passed, and neighbors noticed the light that radiated from boy Noey as well. He grew up to become a god-fearer, capable of giving hope to the dead and the living, in the midst of a deadly pandemic.

Accuracy of Book Profile

Nothing to declare.

Draw of Story

The author manages to write with all her heart and, by using the first-person narrative, draws us even more into the story, making us closer to it.

Possible Drawbacks

The book has a good rhythm that ends up not tiring with repetitions or excesses. Everything seems to follow an efficient flow.

Use of Special Effects

THE STORY RELIES A LITTLE BIT ON SPECIAL EFFECTS

Primary Hook of Story

The hook is about having hope. Even non-religious people can be attracted to this type of hook. And the story, which is a bit reminiscent of Superman, obviously each in its own genre, can help people get closer to the characters even more.

Fanbase Potential

Religious films have gained more and more public and more prominence, with loyal fans. And as here we have a narrative that talks about hope and the sadness of mass deaths for both worlds, the interest of non-religious fans could also be great.

Awards Potential

If the adaptation leans towards a drama about the "abandoned" boy who finally discovers that he was loved by his biological parents and is loved by his adoptive parents, and that even in adversity, he managed to maintain the light and his faith, the drama would have a chance of awards.

Envisioned Budget

MEDIUM BUDGET

What’s New About the Story

Having this diverse visit to the pandemic environment ends up making the work more original.

Lead Characters

Noey's mother is indeed a stand-out character. She is kind, altruistic, concerned about her loved ones, and keeps her hope alive regardless of the adversities of her own existence. She is an excellent character to welcome Noey, as if she were a kind of Virgin Mary welcoming the baby Jesus. An enlightened boy like Noey needs an enlightened mother like her.

Uniqueness of Story

Not a rare gem, but it does have a heart and a good updated Christian narrative.

Possible Formats

Film: Indie TV Series: Mini-Series, Streaming, Unscripted

Analyst Recommendation

WORK IN PROGRESS

Justification

Despite having a very interesting narrative about the enlightened boy who suddenly arrives in a family to bring hope to people in such a difficult time, it would need even more character and plot development to become a more robust film or series.

Tips for Improvement

If the idea is to turn the book into a TV series, we would need greater development of characters and subplots, capable of keeping the content elevated for a few episodes and still maintaining a certain suspense for what is to come. The search for Noey's biological parents is a hook that could be held for several episodes, with gradual revelations that take us further into who these people are and why they gave the boy away. But in this case, the subplots would need to gain volume and content to run in parallel as compelling stories A, B, and C. If the idea is to turn it into a film, the content itself seems enough to guide the dramatic arc, but a little more drama and conflicts are essential to hold the viewer's attention. More twists and turns in the plot, more moments of ups and downs, almost like a zig-zag that constantly leads the audience up and down emotionally concerning Noey's story. And the main point. This is a niche story, but it takes place in an environment that everyone knows: the pandemic. In this case, it is also possible to work on the narrative in a way that draws a more general audience as well, in addition to fans of religious works.
