My second unproduced screenplay was a drama inspired by one of my favorite films, 1980's Ordinary People.
Lie of Youth is the story of Daniel, a popular college senior who is expelled after his fraternity is involved in a hazing incident where a freshman accidentally dies. When he moves back home he finds himself falling for Emily, the high school sweetheart of the boy who died.
This scene takes place at a park playground between Daniel and Chris, his best friend from high school as Chris reminisces about the past.
