This screenplay has some appealing elements, but needs substantial development to achieve an unqualified recommendation. A diverse case, appealing setting (New Orleans, past and present), substantial emotional material and active roles for children. However, the pace lags, many of the characters are two-dimensional and the multiple story lines are confusing. There also needs some clarification about the history of racism (including the Swastika element.) This has the potential to become an entertaining and educational ghost story.
When three precocious children unlock the mystery of an old haunted house, they discover hidden treasure, green and the ghosts of the neighborhood's racist past. But the real discovery is not about the haunted house, but what makes a neighborhood: working together with acceptance, connection to a communal past and unity of purpose.
