Drama • 6 min • Unproduced
After a young artist leaves home to spend the night creating street art, her mother is forced to acknowledge her coming of age in order to find her.
Alexandra, a young artist works on street art in the dead of night as her worried, disapproving mother Julia searches for her. In the process, Alexandra overcomes an assailant as she navigates dark laneways looking for a canvas.
The story moves back and forth between the two and it becomes apparent that Alexandra is both more talented and street smart than her mother realises.
When Julia finds her daughter, her relief turns to anguish as her refusal to acknowledge her coming of age pushes Alexandra further away. Julia is forced to acknowledge Alexandra's artistry, maturity and love for her mother when she sees her majestic art piece of role reversal - the daughter cradling the mother.
