NO WAY BACK
By: Helen Young
In a world where career choices come with fierce competition, marriage and family plans get put on hold for best friends Christine and Zoe. The aging runway model and rising lawyer stick together to make their dreams come true. Enter Adam, Christine’s almost perfect man. Once wedding plans heat up reality settles in for both ladies, and the battle for Adam takes centre stage. The road to “I do” can be longer than you think!
CHRISTINE – (Female – 30’s) a model, materialistic, wants to have the ‘perfect life’ with her boyfriend ADAM
ZOE – (Female – 30’s) a lawyer, level headed, CHRISTINE’s best friend, thinks she may be falling for ADAM
ADAM – (Male – 30-40’s) works on the oil rigs, is considering quitting the rigs to settle down with CHRISTINE, is confused about his growing feelings for ZOE
We look forward to your submissions!
