Project Description: Three months after a school shooting, survivor Sadie struggles to reconcile with her mother Terry and best friend Elyse as the rest of her class returns to school without her.
SADIE - Lead, 15-19 years old, any ethnicity. Snarky and angry at everyone and everything; she is isolated from the world, half by choice and half due her her circumstances as a shooting survivor; her injuries include a shattered femur and PTSD; she is disheveled and messy, a former shell of herself.
TERRY - Supporting, 40-55 years old, any ethnicity. Sadie's mother; despite Sadie's hostility, Terry does everything in her power to help her only daughter. She is patient and kind, but also fatigued from her role as a caregiver.
ELYSE - Supporting, 15-19 years old, any ethnicity. Sadie's best friend and a fellow survivor. She has recovered much faster than Sadie and will be returning to school the next day. Still, she suffers from PTSD like Sadie.
Dates of Production: Dec 2 - 4
