Project Synopsis
It’s the last day of September and the last day before Mia, a newly graduated High School student, travels across the country to attend UofT. Will, a long-time childhood friend and much more complacent rockstar-wanna-be, is staying behind. The two attempt to spend their remaining few hours together by revisiting their childhood spots and contemplating the future of their friendship. This coming-of-age slice-of-life sets up the moment before the rest of their lives as they cling to their youth whilst coming to terms with the responsibilities of growing up in different directions.
Character 1
Will
Age
18-25
Gender
Male
Description
Will is a newly high school graduate music enthusiast with no academic plans yet perfectly complacent with his stagnancy. Boyish and sentimental, he is much more content to reminisce about his youth and the pleasures of life than focus on far-away responsibilities. He approaches his feelings towards Mia leaving with aloof humor and playful banter rather than voicing how he genuinely feels. He is the embodiment of a teenage boy who doesn't know how to grow up.
Character 2
Mia
Age
18-25
Gender
Female
Description
Mia, ambitiously academic and seeking to make an impact on the world, has big dreams for her future and is ready to adapt to attain them. She’s still battling her inner immature child when facing the responsibility that she feels to become a sensible adult. Whilst Will brings out her playfulness, she still feels like she has outgrown his teenage immaturity.
