Project Synopsis
This indie darling film explores the ideas of identity and the facades we put in place through the evolving relationship between Emma and Arthur who meet at a storytelling group. As Arthurs past starts to come to the surface, Emma is challenged by the persona he displays versus his past wrongdoings.
Additional Information & Safety Protocols: 

The script is not finalized but may include some scenes of intimacy, this will not include nudity or simulated sex. An intimacy coordinator will be brought to set and will guide those scenes.

We are also looking for stories to add that are told throughout the movie. We are looking to find passionate writers and storytellers to help create those. If you’d be interested in that feel free to also reach out with some of your work and/or ideas
