Divorce can be rough, especially on children. But it can be easier getting by with the help of a friend.
FILMING IN PROGRESS!
Cody's parents are getting divorced. His mother Rachel, who got pregnant and married young, has felt the weight of the world on her shoulders for years. Being coupled by a failing romance with Cody's father, Ryan, things are beginning to spiral downward, and fast. Ryan, riddled with depression after being laid off and unable to get his writing published has lost his way, making him disengage from his family. It's only a matter of time before things reach the point of no return for their marriage.
Anxious, confused, and feeling like he's running out of time, Cody looks to his imaginary friend Einat to help save his family. Einat deftly acts as protector and confidante to Cody. In return, Cody gets caught up in the emotional aspect of the friendship, which only gets him in trouble in the end, causing even more tension and reason for his parents to fight.
Whether amicable or not, children see divorce through a very different prism than the adults involved. As a filmmaker, what I'm attempting to do with these characters is revisit and explore the innocence and vulnerability of childhood, and highlight the guilt and responsibility that children of divorce often feel. Ultimately, Cody invents Einat as a way to introduce harmony and balance to his life and the lives of his parents. Will his attempts work?
