Project Synopsis
A failed former actress tries to find meaning in her post-acting life.
Additional Comments: 

Auditions for the project will be through self-taped auditions and demo reels, and callbacks and cast rehearsals will also be online (unless COVID restrictions have been lifted in time). Principal photography is scheduled to begin in October 2020 but we will not shoot until physical distancing measures have been lifted and we can ensure a safe working environment for everyone involved.
