ROOM TO FORGET
Would you leave behind idealism & love in search of a dream?
ALEX an aspiring playwright, did exactly that only to find himself crippled with self doubt. To cure a case of writers block he heads back to the one place he can call home, to the one person who made him whole.
Alex arrives to find the commune he grew up in, in the midst of great change.
It's future at stake, the communes small insular community finds itself fractured, divided into two. One pragmatic, the other, idealistic to the end. GENA, one of the latter, is holding on to the idealism Alex abandoned for the bright lights of New York.
With this turbulent backdrop, Alex does all he can to win back Gena, the only woman he's ever loved, though she doubts his motives.
For better or worse Alex attempts to gain closure with Gena the only way he knows how, through nostalgia, drink and music.
This is a very personal story, told through the kaleidoscope of a unique community, and it's idiosyncratic members. You may not believe in anything any more, but with a quiet passion these people certainly do.
