Story Line

STORY LINE: Anna (name will change) is Los Angeles actor in her twenties. She awakes from a nightmare then we see episodes of her life for the next 24 hours. Interwoven are also memories that come to her during the day, hallucinations brought up from circumstances of the day, and dreams of how she would like things to be. The basics are that she has a project meeting, is bugged by an ex-boyfriend, tweets random thoughts, goes on an audition, heads for a modeling audition in a sketchy neighborhood, visits the ocean, goes to a coffee shop to meet the boyfriend, loses her phone, meets a new guy she impulsively takes home, and gets into trouble.

The film is a surreal satire in the vein of Natural Born Killers, without the killing and a little less frenetic. Anna is a sympathetic character who struggles to make the best of life in the face of the obstacles we all know and are buried under. In the end, she picks herself up with optimism for a new day.

The script is written to give the actor playing Anna a full range of acting challenges. If all comes together as planned, this film will showcase the actor impressively.
