For my honors thesis, I have written an original screenplay that explores the themes of tragedy, family, and friendship. Inspired by independent movies such as Sunshine Cleaning and Perks of Being a Wallflower, and screenwriters like Scott Neustadter and Michael Weber, the screenplay focuses on a young woman, Charlie Abbott, who is dealing with the aftermath of tragedy and a revelation that changes her entire life. In an effort to escape her problems, Charlie leaves home and moves to a small town where she meets a group of people that have a huge impact on her life. While there, Charlie is forced to come to terms with all of the issues that she is trying to outrun. The screenplay focuses on the importance of family and friends in times of difficulty, and the instinct to run away from problems rather than facing them.
