Project Synopsis
A retired superhero must overcome a villain from her dark past in order to reconnect with her daughter. This comedic action fantasy explores the themes of family, revenge, and trust. The film is packed with female empowerment, bad jokes, absurdity, surrealism, and comic book style editing.

Description
Stoic and instilled with a strong sense of justice, Victoria finds herself unmotivated in early retirement.

She deeply regrets her actions, and her guilt has created a schism between her and her daughter.

Cora (The Daughter)

Cora is spunky, sarcastic, withdrawn, and pessimistic. She idolizes and loves her mother deeply but also feels a lot of anger towards her.

8-12

Additional Characters

BACKGROUND ROLES, NON-SPEAKING: (Nov 15 only)
6 RESTAURANT WAITERS (open gender, age 20-40)

Like a group of backup dancers, this fabulously cool crew of servers are also in the Victoria Demers superhero fan club. When she arrives in the restaurant they worship her en masse. The ability to project personality and intention through body movement, like a dancer, will be a huge asset for this role.
