Writer Statement

I wrote this screenplay while I was studying in Central Film School in London (the class of Nico Tatarowicz) and got really inspired by the question what if….?
What if the opera singer wore a mask and nobody has ever seen her face? What is the price of success? Is it great not being recognized on the streets? Tried to answer these questions in my script.
I would appreciate the comments on the grammar because English is not my native language.
The tagline: “She lives on the stage and plays in life”.
Thank you for reading.
