LOGLINE: In the wake of her father’s death, an isolated queer teenager in traditionalist, small-town Massachusetts embarks on a surreal adventure to self-actualization when she discovers a body-stealing alien in the woods.

STATUS: Completed, seeking development.

SUMMARY: Charlie is a lonely, queer teenager out of place in a family of dominant, hyper-masculine boys. Preoccupied by an expansive imagination and an atypical understanding of the world around her, she struggles to navigate her community and foster relationships. When her father unexpectedly commits suicide and her family spirals slowly into aggression and conflict, Charlie pulls away and finds curious solace in the woods with an unlikely friend — a parasitic, ambiguously motivated alien. Her friend, who we discover inhabits various human bodies for short-lived periods of time to survive Earth, joins Charlie in her process of self-discovery.
