"Home" is a short film depicting the false normalcy and fear generated in an abusive relationship, and how it affects not only those involved in altercations, but how it affects a familial unit. Without showing any actual violence, we are trying to shed light and awareness onto this growing domestic problem.
Description of Role(s) Available:
Kathleen (28): Kathleen is the vision of a housewife. She shines, like a well-kept trophy. Unlike one, she has aspirations to escape her place in the home. A mother of two, and spouse of one (in that order) Kathleen has obligations which do not grant her the privilege of freedom. She is strong and has a will to persist, but even the most powerful have chains which can bind them. In an abusive home, Kathleen struggles to determine whether perseverance or self-defense is less painful.
Tom (33): Tom is tall, with neat hair. He is the kind of man to wear too much cologne. Bribery does not equate to forgiveness, though Tom doesn’t seem to care. Generous, when it comes to purchases of status, Tom is always frugal in how he spends his emotion. To Tom, swift and severe punishment is the only way to teach obedience. Tom does not have a dog, instead, he trains his family.
