Lucy & Miranda (can't boot scoot!!)

Lucy & Miranda haven't been friends since the age of 7 where they shared a common interest in line dancing. Years have passed and they find themselves living in the same town, both despondent with their lives. Oddball Lucy's line dancing school is on the brink of bankruptcy while heavily pregnant Miranda has not yet come to terms with her lot in life. Lucy convinces Miranda to embark on a road trip to the Tamworth line dancing championships to save her line dancing school before her cheating greedy boyfriend, Greg, takes it all away from her. Along the way, on this hilarious journey, a heartwarming friendship is born.

Writer Statement

Writing Lucy & Me was so much fun. To build a heartwarming friendship between these two mismatched friends was a joy for me. Both characters have pieces of myself and my female friends. I have incorporated my love for dance in this film with lots of upbeat boot scooting routines.
