Synopsis: While trapped at home, a meek housewife struggles to care for a disabled, suicidal friend and an irresponsible husband, all while suppressing her own emotions towards them both. 

 

Characters: 

Mandy (FEMALE, LATE 20s to EARLY 30s): Mandy is a stay-at-home wife caring for Matthew, the disabled friend of her and her husband Bruce. Mandy is deeply empathetic, always putting the care of others before herself. However, her passivity leaves her open to exploitation by the two men in her life. After Matthew's condition dramatically worsens, she is torn between giving him the proper care and standing up for herself. 

Bruce (MALE, LATE 20s to EARLY 30s): The husband of Mandy, friend of Matthew, and failing writer. Bruce denies responsibility for anything in his life - including the success of his own pursuits. He both resents Matthew's presence and uses it as an excuse for his own failings. Bogged down by stress - real and imaginary - he leaves Matthew's care mostly to his wife to focus on his writing.

Matthew (MALE, LATE 20s to EARLY 30s): An overweight, mentally-ill man without many friends or family. He is a friend of Bruce and Mandy and so lives in their house for his care. Due to his condition, he is unable to leave his room, consumed by deep loneliness and isolation. The film's story begins after he attempts (but fails) to commit suicide. PHYSICAL WEIGHT PREFERRED BUT NOT REQUIRED.

Dr. Gibson (MALE, 60s): Mandy's therapist. He video-calls her from his office in order to help her deal with the stress of caring for Matthew around the clock. Although he senses that something is not right, he is unable to articulate what the solution is to Mandy's emotional problems. THIS ROLE WILL BE VIRTUALLY PRE-RECORDED.

My American Dream

Date posted: Aug 6th, 2019

View More >

My name is Tony Nayenga and I wrote the book My American Dream using my pen name Nekemiah Muzazibwa.  My book in online and I have had several book signings with very good feedback.  This story chronicles my life from a Civil War inUganda 1977 to a life in the U.S. with my family.  I explain the trials and tribulations  I/we encountered with many success until I was diagnosed with mul  sclerosis which I dealt with in denial.(as it is taboo in my culture).  Also, there is a love story detailed with a hirl I didn’t know from Ghana  which led to the birth of my 2 children. But my dream  with my children has become redefined as MS is a taboo among my people as I was getting very sick. I am in the process of converting this book to a short film and next a feature film, hopefully. If any producers can contact me I’d appreciate it!  Thank you.
