The Story:
In an old wooden farm house isolated in the middle of nowhere, June and Ezra are at the end of their romantic relationship. They struggle with whether to stay or leave but they can’t go their separate ways just yet; they must wait for an important package to arrive. Until this package arrives, they are stuck in this house, in this relationship together.

Filming is scheduled to shoot over the course of three weekends in October. All filming will take place in the Salisbury/Eastern Shore area. This is a non-union, unpaid production, but gas mileage reimbursement and of course meals are included.

This is the thesis film project for Sarah Nelson, former Salisbury resident and current American University student working toward her MA in Film and Video at American University. She is a 2 time American University Visions award-winning filmmaker for the 2013 Experimental Photography and 2013 Outstanding Fiction Production (Short) award. We plan to submit this film to festivals upon completion.
