“Lucidity” is a film about Maeve, a seventeen-year-old girl who’s broken family has driven her to the point of suicide. During the course of the film she has to learn to let go, with help from her under-appreciated therapist, Thom, to the fantastic image she has of her absentee mother, Kris, in order to finally be able to be okay with herself. The film is very dialogue-based.

Seeking the following:
Supporting role. Dark haired, Eastern-European ethnicity preferred (but not necessary). Scott is Maeve’s father. He is a divorced, single parent. He means well but cannot seem to connect with his daughter or deal with her problems, and is constantly shipping her off to her therapist because he does not know what to do with her.

Supporting role. Any ethnicity. Thom is Maeve’s longtime therapist. Although she does not appreciate him, he is the only adult in her life who has constantly been available to support her and there to listen. Thom is the one who aids Maeve’s development and growth throughout the film.

Featured role. White, “blond hair with dark roots showing” type. Kris, Maeve’s mother, is a real personality. Outwardly, she is cheap and trashy, from her tight, unflattering clothing to the cigarette that dangles permanently from her lips. As a person, she is no better. Kris left her family when Maeve was young without so much as a warning. She is self-involved and has no grasp on reality. She has no regard for how her actions affect others and is the root of all of Maeve’s unhappiness.
