From New York to Nashville

A musician struggles with his sobriety, his music, and his abusive ex-girlfriend.

ALEX is a singer/songwriter/guitarist in Hell’s Kitchen, New York City. He spends much of his time trying to stay sober. Looking for a fresh start, and against the advice of one of his only true friends, GEORGE, Alex relocates to Nashville with SASHA, his alcoholic ex-girlfriend. Once there, he realizes that his friendship with SILVIE just might be the best thing to happen to him in many years. Unfortunately, Silvie is back in New York and has not answered his calls.
Alex finds that Nashville is no different from New York as long as Sasha remains in his life. After things come to a head with Sasha, Alex finally makes a clean break from her. He can now focus on the things in his life that are most important: his music and Silvie.

Writer Biography - Armand Arekian

I am a 20 something year veteran of a major U.S. airline…I am a former Masters Cyclocross racer…living in the Northeast U.S. While I still try to get on the bicycle for the occasional casual ride, my days of competing are over. I have replaced my cycling training and racing days with writing. As I approach full retirement, I look to expand my experiences. My airline career has allowed me to begin my next career chapter…screenwriting.

I am a passionate and driven screenwriter, early in my writing career. I write mostly crime/mystery and horror/thriller. While I have no formal education for writing, I do have a two year Associate Degree in business. As a writer, I am completely self taught, and writing with Fade In Software has certainly shrunk the learning curve for me.

During 2018/2019, I wrote and self published a novella, “Burn”, followed by two more manuscripts. In late 2019, I began to write my first screenplay, turning “Burn” into a feature film screenplay. Since that first screenplay, I have written several features and shorts, in various genres. Many have garnered multiple awards in screenplay contests and film festivals.

In addition to screenwriting, I also dabble in extra/background work and voice acting. Being on set fascinates me. Seeing and being part of the production process has helped me with my screenwriting.
