Breaking & Entering

GENRE: Drama
TYPE: Short Screenplay
LOGLINE: Discovering the body of a long-lost love while locked in a morgue, an alcoholic nymphomaniac performs a living autopsy on her life that culminates in her decision to end it.

SYNOPSIS:

CORRINE (29), a down-on-her-luck alcoholic who also suffers from hypersexuality, is desperate for a drink and attempts to break into a familiar pub during the wee hours one morning.

In the darkness of a back alley, Corrine mistakenly enters the wrong establishment and finds herself locked in a morgue with a dead body covered by a sheet. She eventually gets up the nerve to pull the sheet away, only to discover DILLON (30’s), her one-time boyfriend and the only man she ever truly loved.

Confined with Dillon’s body, Corrine travels through the past in a one-way conversation, re-examining the causes of their break-up and all things wrong; and reliving one thing that was always right.

Through her own words, Corrine assesses her life and summons the courage to face the inevitable on her terms.
