Project Synopsis
A young woman is leaving the family nest to study the arts in Vancouver against her Mother's wishes. While in the back on the family van, she reminisces on the steps she has taken to establish her independency from her overbearing Mother. We see flashes to the past of a young girl playing with a doll house, and in particular a doll that resembles an older version of her. The story explores the roles we play in our families and the independency we yearn for.
Additional Comments: 

A skeleton crew of 2 plus actors will be involved in this production. A proper COVID-19 Health & Safety Plan will be established and employed to protect everyone involved. Shooting should take approximately 3 days, which includes scenes at the family home and the drive to Vancouver.

Mother/daughter pairings are encouraged to submit as casting requires the mother and daughter to have the same eye and hair colour (open ethnicity). Also, note the mother/young girl and mother/young woman pairing will be proximity of one another.

Character 1
Mother
Age
40-50
Gender
Female
Description
Protective and caring to a fault, she only wants what's best for her daughter: a safe and financial secure lifestyle. One that doesn't traditionally come with a life in the arts. A by-product of small town thinking. She is constantly butting heads with her daughter on personal matters and this has caused a strain in their relationship.
Character 2
Young Girl
Age
6-12
Gender
Female
Description
A curious girl who enjoys playing with her mother's dollhouse, even though she is not allowed to. She often sneaks into the guest bedroom to play with it bringing other toys and figurines to join in the fun.
Character 3
Father
Age
40-50
Gender
Male
Description
Father is the by-product of blue-collar living. He is endearing and practical. The rock of the family.
