Biography

Halle Maria Berry was born August 14, 1966 and is an award-winning American actress. She is the only woman of African American descent to have ever won the award for Best Actress.

Berry has won both an Emmy and Golden Globe award, and was awarded an oscar in 2002 which lead to her famous crying speech.

Berry first came to my attention in the rather strange human version of The Flintstones and since then has starred in many movies such as X-Men, Die Another Day, Gothika, Monsters Ball and Cat Woman.

Like the majority of mother and sons, Karla and her son Frankie share a special bond. They love spending time together and have days out together enjoying one another's company. Karla decides that she and Frankie will spend the day at the park and the pair begin to have a wonderful day together, Whilst Frankie plays on the children's play equipment, they play a game of Marco Polo. Karla affectionately calls for her son by shouting 'Marco' whilst Frankie reciprocates with 'Polo', the game goes on for a while before Karla finds her calls going unanswered.

Becoming more and more worried about her son, Karla frantically begins to search and eventually sees one of his toys on a bench. Her concern escalates and leads to her asking 'have you seen my son' to anyone and everyone who will listen. Journeying to the car park, he catches a glimpse of a boy she believes to be Frankie being put into the back of an old vehicle. She reaches the car but in the chase Karla drops her phone.

Taking pursuit of the vehicle in her own car, Karla decides to go to the police station but the officer on duty doesn't see Karla's pleas as an urgent matter and asks her to fill out report forms.
