An unplanned pregnancy leaves Rosilind at a loss and kidnapping for answers.
NOTE: If we don't get the full amount we get nothing, and my dreams will be dashed....so no pressure.
Rosilind, a lost girl in her twenties, discovers that she is pregnant. Instead of making a hard decision she fixates on a young mother and child who shop at her grocery store. One day she follows them home and impulsively, when the opportunity presents itself, she takes the child. What follows is a life lesson Rosilind will never forget.
For lack of a better metaphor, Rosilind's story has been growing inside me for the past two years and it's finally time to PUSH.
My growing desire (desperation) to make a name for myself as a filmmaker coupled with my frustration with current political debates concerning women have really put this project at the forefront of my thoughts. So much so, that... here we are, asking for money.
Also, I dream of further establishing Tucson as a place where filmmakers can work and thrive, so that I don't have to live in Los Angeles for the rest of my life.
