Desperate after a tough breakup, a sorority girl goes to dinner with her high school ex to discover what she did wrong. (Senior Thesis Film) Alt Version: A sorority girl must figure out why her last relationship fell apart to try and save her current one. She does this by going on a date with her ex from high school and learns that love isn’t everlasting and is often blinding.
As far as I can tell, the plot is about a college girl who meets with her high school ex to find out why she’s failed (again) in a relationship.
Well, at that age I venture that most young adults are going through a period of trial and error in their relationships. That’s part of the unavoidable process of growing up. It may be headline news to her that at that age love isn’t everlasting and often blinding — but, alas, it’s not an uncommon experience and realization.
What is so special, so unique about her trials and errors? Is there a unique angle or twist in relationships that is going to be explored in this film?
What does she want out of the date? What does he want? What is each character fighting for on this date?
(And there has to be a conflict between them even if low key and both are minding their manners. The essence of drama is conflict. If there’s no conflict, then there’s no drama.)
