Current Project

Late Bloomers


Louise, 28, aimless, recently single, sort of a musician, millennially depressed without admitting to it, drunkenly slips down a set of icy stairs and breaks her hip, landing her in a therapy ward full of elderly women. There, she makes an 86-year-old friend and faces the truth about aging - it happens to everyone.
