THE FACE OF CONTRITION
Written & Directed by Jeremy Sony
A ratings-starved news pundit on the brink of cancellation, James is coping with the death of his wife and co-host, Alison. He's wants to break the last story they worked on together, but the pressure to produce ratings and stay on the air without Alison's help is greater than he realized. Loyalties are put to the fire when a congressional scandal erupts within James' inner-circle. Squaring off against his daughter, the media, and even his dead wife, how far will James go to make his deadline and ensure his wife's final story will be told?
Separation Anxiety will screen Saturday, June 4th at 7:00pm in North Hollywood, CA, at the Theatre Tribe Film Festival. Located at 5267 Lankershim Blvd., North Hollywood, tickets are $10. Please check out the Facebook event from Separation Anxiety actor Tyler Seiple for more information.
Thoughts. From my brain. Anything to do with how we tell stories and the stories we tell each other. Literally and figuratively.
