Only the Strong Survive. Wayne Gurman’s life story. Follow him as he tears through the mean streets of the Bronx. Losing friends, making enemies and fighting against the odds to find Paradise. SYNOPSIS Ride Shotgun with Wayne as he bulls his way through the Bronx, picking up his trigger happy best friend, John (John Palumbo) a racist mafia killer with a penchant for violence. See Wayne as he stalks deadbeats like ‘Harry the Jew’ (Dennis Paladino) or being shadowed by “The Ghouls” “(Biagio Tripodi) an invalid attached to an oxygen tank, whose dream is to become a cocaine dealer like his idol Wayne. To make matters worse, “Little Mike” (Tim Cinnante) and Nicky (Peter Bongiorno) two neighborhood psychos are robbing and killing in the middle of the night and have plans of their own. While their boss “Frankie Sunshine”, (Ralph Squillante) brightens the neighborhood by cutting down anybody who gets in his way. Its no joyride for Wayne as he tries to keep his family together, his wife happy (Brea Cola) and find his own “Bronx Paradise”. “Bronx Paradise” was written by Wayne Gurman and directed by William Lappe. It is based on Wayne Gurman's life. Detailing his criminal lifestyle from 1984- 1999. He was arrested in 1999 and turned his life around. Executive producer, Wayne Gurman.

Starring, Wayne Gurman, John Palumbo, Arthur Nascarella, Thomas Jefferson Byrd, Louis Vaneria, Lev Gorn, Brea Cola, Karen Lynn Gorney, Biagio Tripodi,Ralph Squillante, Tim Cinnante and Peter Bongiorno.

Joe himself is developing a screenplay for a future John Palumbo film. He's looking for investors.
I'M PRESENTLY WORKING ON A SCREENPLAY FOR JOHN. WORKING TITLE IS SNAKEHEADS (ILLEGAL CHINESE IMMIGRANT SMUGGLERS) OR MOTT & BAYARD. SNAKEHEADS MIGHT BE TOO TOUGH A TITLE FOR THE GENERAL PUBLIC. THE ENTIRE SCREENPLAY TAKES PLACE IN CHINATOWN AND LITTLE ITALY. CONFLICTS BETWEEN THE ITALIAN AND CHINESE MOBS. LOTS OF BLOOD AND GUTS.
