"Lucky" is a short film that explores the nuances of an ever-evolving relationship between an adoptive single mother and her adopted son. Specifically this film highlights the newly formed family of two as they relocate for her new job and try to navigate the emotions that come with change.
[Jacqui] [GENDER: FEMALE] [AGE: Late 30's] [We welcome and encourage all ethnicities]
As a product of a broken home, Jacqui has always wanted a family of her own to reclaim and redefine what "family" can truly mean. As she hit 30, she found herself in the last year of putting herself through nursing school and instead of rejoicing in her great accomplishment, she felt an emotional void — an absence. After a few years of working hard, sailing up through the ranks at work but still not having any luck in relationships, she decided to pursue adoption to help her feel complete.
[YOUNG PETER [GENDER: MALE] [AGE: 7-9] [We welcome and encourage all ethnicities]
The first few years of Peter's life were difficult in that he and his single mom never quite had "enough" but were always full of love and happiness. His mother worked hard to give her son whatever she could to make his life joyous. But when she became terminally ill with no outside family support and little medical intervention, he witnessed the light of his life slowly extinguish and leave him alone before his 5th birthday as a ward of the state.
[ADULT PETER [GENDER: MALE] [AGE: mid to late 20's] [We welcome and encourage all ethnicities]
After years of hard work in school and small parts in various ensembles, Peter, now in his mid to late 20's has landed his first starring role in a Broadway show. As he prepares to step out onto the stage for the opening night performance he acknowledges the hard work and sacrifice of the one who helped him get here.
