PLOT SUMMARY: We’re all going to die. But what would you do if you could see how much time everyone around you has left? Katie, a therapist, struggles to answer this question every day. She can see Countdowns, numbers above everyone’s heads that tick down to the moment they die. Surrounded by daily reminders of mortality, she lives by one rule: don’t get involved. That rule is challenged by Parker, one of Katie’s patients. Ex-military, he carries his own burdens. When the persistent Parker asks Katie out, she comes face to face with her fear and must decide if the craving to be close is worth the unavoidable consequences. Especially since Parker has only 30 days left.

KATIE (20s): A young professional, a therapist. Because of her ability to see when people will die, she’s seen the seconds tick by on everyone she’s ever cared about; it’s no surprise that she withdrew. Tip-toes the line of social brusqueness. Torn between longing for an emotional connection with someone and the innate, heavily-cultured instinct to protect herself. In her eyes, people aren’t worth the risk, and relationships are uncharted territory.
PARKER (20s-early 30s): Ex-military. He’s seen his fair share and carries the weight on shoulders that were born to protect others. Learning to let his pre-soldier free spirit have a bit more rein in his life. Tries to balance returning to normalcy with all he’s experienced and the baggage that comes with it.
