Synopsis: A dramedy, weird and wonderful, about a dysfunctional daughter (Louise) with selective mutism and the love her Mother in the early stages of Alzheimers. Mother missed her calling as a singer and becomes jealous of Louise’s new sober companion. Louise seems to be the problem, yet, she is the only family member physically there for Mother. Louise’s actions speak louder than words, a farcical reality.

Director's Statement

It took three years to write this script, eleven years to get it financed, two days to chop it down to a short script, and 15 minutes of sheer dysfunctional bliss to tell a little tale of everyday madness. My first attempt at directing and writing and winning a few awards — that was fun!
