Production Description

Casting "Tanya's Had A Rough Week," a student film for Sarah Lawrence College. Synopsis: Tanya, recently dumped by her girlfriend and fired from her job, decides to pawn her grandmother's wedding ring to make ends meet. She soon regrets the decision and returns to the pawn shop to discover the ring has actually been sold. Thanks to a tip from an employee, she finds the purchaser of the ring at a coffee shop. However, he does not want to sell back the ring. In a moment of desperation, Tanya grabs the ring, swallows it, and runs out of the shop. The ring gets stuck in her throat and she ends up in the hospital. With no health insurance to pay for the X-ray, Tanya realizes she will probably have to sell the ring to pay for her medical expenses.
