Writer/Director Susan Funk is casting for an incredible short film project.

A family drama that deals with death, life and the ever evolving arcs of human emotion.

The character breakdowns presented are intended as a guide for interested actors as strong improvisation skills are required.
The dramatic action is scripted and structured. The dialogue has structured elements but requires improvisation.

GRANDMOTHER
Female. Age range: 50-65. Ethnicity: Caucasian

Practical, matter of fact personality until she has a few drinks and the fa├žade drops. She
has a silly sense of humor which sometimes falls flat. She also has a deep emotional side
that she tries to keep in check.

GRANDDAUGHTER
Female. Age range: 35-45. Ethnicity: Caucasian/Mixed

A lot like GM except she wears her heart on her sleeve. She is overwhelmed by her loss

GREAT GRANDMOTHER

This is a very demanding role. She dies before we see her. Most of the movie takes
place around her body in bed. Requires actress to have her clothes changed by GM and
GD and be zipped in a body bag.

GRANDPA

Deals with his emotions through humor but remains strong for GM. Able to cry and
show his feelings. Very jovial.
