PROJECT SYNOPSIS

A willful teen girl seeks an accomplice for the night, who arrives in the form of a condoling cowboy, and together they provoke intimacy from the world.

Additional Comments:

NOTE: NUDITY
One WIDE SHOT – PROFILE – Head to toe.
One MCU that becomes a WIDE SHOT – FROM BEHIND – as either characters walk away from camera. The nudity is story and thematically motivated. Non-sexual. Non-gratuitous. It is about a level of vulnerability and intimacy for the viewer that drives the impact of the ending.

DESCRIPTION

John- Caucasian An ethereal presence in the guise of a human? Both fascinated and repulsed by people, but regardless unable to connect with them. His past is unknown, maybe even to himself. He is now a man playing the character of a cowboy full-time; a stretch from his true personality, but he plays it well. He is a reserved and prudent man, who has given up on the idea of surprise or beauty to manifest in his life. He has given up on the idea of the aforementioned connection, until he meets Angela. Before her his life is disassociated from the world around him. Perhaps as a result, he pushes himself beyond normal psychological limitations; he pursues palpable interactions in a material – non digital – world. He thirsts for making marks that matter.

Angela
AGE

18-25

GENDER

Female

DESCRIPTION

Angela-All Ethnicities An alienated and empathetic teenager, maturing into an adult against her will. She has a great command of speech, is well read, and is somewhat desensitized to her own sexuality – which can come off as comfort or confidence. She is sensitive to the pain of others, and uses it to bond to her own experience in order to stifle the loneliness that comes from having a high level of intelligence at an early age. She sees humour and compassion as the saving grace for all people, but as she moves towards the biggest decision of her life, it may not be enough. She has been raised in a world of on-screen affection, typed interaction, and instant gratification. Her most tangible life experience has been assisting at the local morgue, where our biological limitations present themselves so plainly she could not help but be moved.
