Project Synopsis
In a dreamy horror-scape world, a young girl named Lily living in a religious community has her faith and individuality challenged on the day of her brother's sacred ascension ceremony when she learns that there is something darker behind the secrecy of the anointment. Torn between her faith in her brother and the heeding of the enthralling pastor's daughter, Lily must make a choice about where she puts her faith to avoid being ceremonially sacrificed.
Additional Information & Safety Protocols:

Character 1
Lily
Age
18
Gender
Female
Description
Docile and sweet, she devotes her life according to how others dictate. Submissive under the continual power of affluent men in her life, it is only her curious relationship with the pastor’s daughter that enables her to challenge her own identity and faith. Plain in appearance, she’s a small nimble brunette.
Character 2
Abe
Age
early 20s (22)
Gender
Male
Description
The embodiment of devotion, he trusts fully in his faith and love for God above all else. Striving to draw spiritually closer to God, he believes the secret ascension ceremony is key. His overprotectiveness and concern for his younger sister manifests in his scorn of the pastor’s daughter. Confident in appearance, he has neat short hair and is conservatively dressed.
Character 3
Soleil
Age
Early 20s (21)
Gender
Female
Description
Soleil is a rebellious free-thinker but trapped within the confines of her father's expectations and control. Soleil is the pastor’s daughter, church gardener and Lily’s role model. She shows strength and independence in femininity, contrasting the powerful men around her.
Character 4
Pastor
Age
50s
Gender
Male
Description
Highly spiritual; highly critical. Traditional in his lifestyle and perspective, he challenges anything that differs from his considered norm. Denying the depth of his own daughter's spiritual crisis, he reverts to imposing his judgements and disapproval and blame on Lily.
Character 5
Brother Angelo
Age
40-50s
Gender
Male
Description
Faithfully Christian man and dutiful first counselor to the pastor. Righteous enough to partake in the sacred ceremonial undergoing of the church, he upholds the traditional conservative views of the church and pastor.
