Welcome to the true-life, historical drama, "Crossing Borders," based on the memoir, "He Died Alone in Tijuana," by Raymond Dayan. My name is Michael Celender and I am the author of this screenplay.
This website is essentially a "visual treatment" for the script, with photos and descriptions of the characters, the family, locations and history that are found in the story.
In 1975, after a Connecticut family man discovers an undisclosed Swiss bank account belonging to his recently-deceased scam-artist father, he recalls his tumultuous youth and the schemes that kept his family moving around Europe, the Middle East and beyond. A true story.
You can download the treatment at the bottom of any page on this site.
