The story explores the many things in life we don't quite understand—such as enchantment, magic spells, and love of all kinds.

MIAMI BEACH, Fla. - EntSun -- "The Love Hex or Nicest Flings in Mexico" by Mike Meier, a Rom-Com that takes place in the year 1929, won "Best Feature Screenplay" at the World Webfest Mania's Feature Screenplay competition (Autumn 2020).

Mike Meier explains where the idea for the story came from: "In the early 1990s when I was a law student, I once listened to a program on National Public Radio (NPR) where a young lady discussed the research for her PhD thesis. She mentioned that in the earlier part of the century, American women sometimes traveled to the hot springs in Mexico to engage in illicit relationships with young Mexican gigolos. I was intrigued."

Years later, he tried to find that young lady and her research thesis. NPR does not archive programs for that long, however. So he contacted libraries and went through listings of PhD theses, but could not locate it.

But it took COVID19 to give him a break from his usual job to finish the screenplay. "I had the draft in my drawer for almost 30 years. With little else to do during the shutdown, I finished the screenplay in June."
