Narrative Feature

[In Development]

Writer: Melissa Dalley

Bennie's always been a loner. When she loses Grace, her oldest (and maybe only) friend, she goes to strange and dangerous lengths to distract herself from her grief. Obsessively posting ads on Craigslist and spending her nights skyping with a woman in a coma, Bennie takes a dead-end job at a dying mall so she can stalk her boss, the one-handed sad-sack known only as F. Intensely desperate for his attention, to what lengths will she go to make a human connection, and will F survive her friendship?

Shorthand is a feature-length narrative film that will be filmed on location in Corpus Christi and Victoria, Texas.
