Writer Statement

"I set the stage in Hollywood in 1999. I have a fascination with this time before the social media chaos.

Cassian is a character I know all too well. It's a love hate relationship I have with him, but I find myself rooting for him every step of the way along this road trip journey to face his past. The imagery of this script is captivating with Hollywood, desert, and even the deep South scenes encapsulating an American anti-hero's journey." -Keeley Turner
