Project Synopsis
"It's You & It's Me" is a comedic and heartfelt short film that follows Nick, a writer struggling to complete his first book amidst the chaos of family life. Nick is granted a brief reprieve when his family leaves for a few days as he battles distractions from his young children and well-meaning wife. However, his solitude is abruptly shattered by the arrival of Young Nick—a younger, carefree version of himself—who encourages him to abandon his writing and indulge in nostalgic escapades. The ensuing clash between Nick’s current responsibilities and his youthful whims sets the stage for a humorous exploration of self-discovery and personal growth. Through a series of comical and poignant interactions, Nick grapples with his past aspirations and the realities of his present. Young Nick’s playful disregard for deadlines and fascination with past hobbies, like video games, forces Nick to confront the balance between work and leisure. As Nick rediscovers his passion and discipline for writing, he learns to appreciate his journey from youthful dreams to fulfilling his responsibilities as a family man and writer. "It's You & It's Me" captures the essence of reconciling one's past with the demands of the present, ultimately celebrating the joy of personal evolution and the importance of staying true to one’s goals.
