A ROOSTER ON THE FIRE ESCAPE

by Guetty Felin

When HECTOR CELESTIN takes his family into exile in the dead of winter of 1974, he was hoping to leave behind the traumas of the brutal dictatorship of his tropical native land but what he traded for their freedom summons a dark spiral from which they might not recover. Set against the backdrop of New York in the tumultuous 70s, A Rooster on the Fire Escape is a drama, which spans over 12 years, about family, love, betrayal and sacrifice, exploring politics under a repressive regime, immigrant status in America, and the fissures that personal secrets can cause to the fabric that holds it all together.
