Breaking & Entering

GENRE: Drama
TYPE: Short Screenplay
LOGLINE: Accidentally locked in a morgue, a young woman discovers the dead body of a lost love, triggering an autopsy-like monologue about her broken life as she spirals downward into insanity.

SYNOPSIS:

CORRINE (32), a beaten-down hypersexual alcoholic, is desperate for a drink and attempts to break into
the back door of a familiar pub during the wee morning hours.

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 summons the nerve to pull the
sheet away, only to discover DILLON (29), the only man she ever truly loved.

Confined with Dillon’s body, Corrine travels through the past via an autopsy-like monologue through
which she questions every decision, thought and impulse that contributed to her current existence. In the
end, that self-awareness and absence of hope culminates in a downward spiral of insanity.
