SYNOPSIS:

A trippy dark comedy that explores the nature of transitioning into adulthood through the lenses of twenty-year-old drug pushing Jay, and his mentally ill romantic interest, eighteen-year-old Colette.

CHARACTER BREAKDOWNS:

CLARA: MID-20’S, FEMALE, BLACK/AFRICAN AMERICAN OR BIRACIAL, BETWEEN 5’3” AND 5’6”, DARK EYES. SUPPORTING CHARACTER. As far back as she can remember, Colette has had an undiagnosed mental disorder that causes her to see two constant hallucinations, Sadie and Clara. Far from imaginary friends, these two women follow her almost everywhere and second-guess her every word and action and are therefore referred to, by Colette, as “millstones.” Clara, the “nicer” of the two, tries to provide Colette with as much advice as possible although it is often self-righteous and unfairly judgmental. Clara is a reflection of the judgmental but pseudo nurturing aspect of authority, filtered through the lens of a mother.
