‘Sisters Islands,’ the upcoming venture from writer/director Miguel Almagro, is about how a strong family bond can empower individuals to undertake actions that are extraordinary. The funding requirement for this project is $30,000.


Singapore -- (ReleaseWire) -- 05/13/2015 --Sisters Islands promises to be a heart-warming short film that will introduce its audience to eternity. Though written for the modern audience, the film is inspired by a popular Singaporean legend.

The film will reach its climax during a diving trip to the Sisters Islands when the depth of the islands will reveal its buried secret to Magnus.
