CECILIA THE CELIBATE
The Black Latina Movement presents a romantic comedy about Cecilia Vasquez, a young woman who teams up with her two best friends to conquer her quest for love and happiness while staying true to her vow of celibacy.
Cecilia, fed up with dead end relationships and meaningless sex, decides to take a vow of celibacy to obtain a deeper and more meaningful, spiritual connection with a prospective suitor. Through countless blind dates, speed dating sessions, and referrals Cecilia begins to lose hope. After meeting a potential candidate in the most unlikely place she is hopeful to explore this challenge with him. The only setback is she hasn't fessed up about being celibate and unbeknownst to her, he has a secret of his own.
This romantic comedy explores the world of dating without the pressure of sexual intimacy and focuses on the development of a connection outside of the sexual realm. Our production company plans to focus on the hardships of dating in NYC (where the male to female ratio is unbalanced) and the pressure society places on sex in a relationship. In order to achieve the desired outcome we will show a plethora of different dating scenarios within Cecilia’s quest and how they develop over time. This piece targets a demographic composed primarily of women who are or have toyed with the idea of celibacy as a new chapter on the road to happiness.
