Abstract

Idling Rough is a semi-autobiographical work of fiction completed for the Capstone Project. The screenplay and critical essay focus on a journey of loss and acceptance that covers financial, emotional, and interpersonal aspects of life. Writing the screenplay serves dual purposes as an affirmation for the author's experience and a broad philosophical statement of progressive change. It also showcases the author's ability as a writer. The story is about three women whose friendship disintegrates when faced with external pressure and internal conflict. Their struggles reveal a theme: Release the past in order to move forward. This is a lesson the author hopes to both learn and teach through this project, and through the public artistic mediums of film and writing.
