Lilith, an isolated recluse with agoraphobia finds her only connection through her jaded-poet caretaker Kat.

Both she and her devoted caretaker become deeply invested in her work, but Lilith must learn to balance her escapism with their ability to care for herself.
Short Character Bios:
KAT (Mid 40’s/ Late 40’s, F)
Kat, a 45 year old jaded writer with a savior complex cares for Lilith with hazy lines of professionalism and morality. As Lilith’s caretaker, Kat makes irresponsible choices in attempts to encourage Lilith to pursue her work. To compensate for her own feelings of failure as a writer and an estranged daughter to her mentally ill mother Kat seeks to redeem herself through walking in the shadow of Lilith’s success. Kat’s personality shifts throughout the film from a caring and confused caretaker to reveal a full on mass manipulator and narcissist. How far will she go to see herself realized, and at what cost?
DAVID (Late 30’s/Early 40’s, M)
David, a 41 year old art gallery owner has a quick wit and business oriented nature. Confident, handsome, but aloof David seeks to find authentic artwork in an otherwise shallow and commercial artistic community. His desire to show powerful and emotional work comes from his own past of being a failed artist and lends to his impatience and over eagerness to fill a gallery show with Lilith’s work.
