The dramedy follows Terese (Bryant), a young woman with cystic fibrosis, who is stuck in the time loop of quarantine. When her self-interested roommate, Amanda (Sarah Kane), returns and fails to practice safe social distancing, our immuno-compromised heroine finds that boredom may be the least of her worries. As she fights her boredom with substances and an unstoppable internal dialogue, Terese ultimately learns to open up and let others in.
The movie, currently in post-production, is one of a slate of movies from producer Wayfarer’s Six Feet Apart Experiment, which challenged storytellers to make contained movies during the pandemic. Five selected filmmakers have been paired with a seasoned storyteller as their mentor and Wayfarer Studios is financing and overseeing the production process. Most of the projects are now in post-production.
Writer-director is Julianne Fox, producer is Porschia Adler. Fox was mentored on the program by Nzingha Stewart (Tall Girl). Also starring are Piper Curda (The Wretched), newcomer Sarah Kane, Iris Liu, and Tre’len Johnston (Yes God Yes).
Before setting the company up, Wayfarer’s Justin Baldoni produced box office hit Five Feet Apart, about a pair of teenagers with cystic fibrosis who meet in a hospital and fall in love, though their disease means they must avoid close physical contact.
Bryant is best-known for starring with Sophia Lillis and Wyatt Oleff in Netflix comedy-sci-fi series I Am Not Ok With This. She is also in post-production on comedy feature Mark, Mary & Some Other People.
Bryant is represented by Innovative Artists. Curda is repped by Hyperion and Curtis Talent Management.
