Letting Go – Short Script Review (Available for Production) - posted by wonkavite

Laptop-Shorts

Letting Go

After a horrible accident, a young girl’s mother has a very hard time letting go.

 The loss of a loved one. Whether it be through death, disappearance or tragic social circumstance, the grieving process is one which all humans experience at one time or another. And one we never truly get used to – especially when an innocent child is concerned. Stories that deal with such issues will never get old. When done properly, the result can be an emotional powerhouse; because it’s so universal. And because we’re often so powerless to stop it.

A simple short, Letting Go follows Jason and Jenna – parents devastated by the loss of their four year old daughter Lily. We meet the couple upstairs in their home. Friends and family have gathered downstairs, but Jenna is in no mood to greet them. Eventually the well-meaning guests depart – leaving Jenna and Jason alone. With their memories, and an empty child’s bedroom.

Carefully crafted, Letting Go explores its topic with respect… Providing a few twists – and a poignant ending – along the way.

Incredibly moving. Put a lump in my throat.
I am such a fan of MML’s writing. Someone needs to make this beauty. 🙂

Great script, Marnie!
I got carried along the whole way, and didn’t see that ending coming. 🙂
