RUN is a short film that explores the dysfunction of a family under the rule of a stern and tyrannical father through the lens of the family’s black sheep daughter.
ANNA: (F, 6-14yrs)
The odd child out. She’s a creative and active young kid who simply does not fit in with her three older brothers. She’s desperate to connect with her family, but cannot seem to get along with her dad or get in touch with her mom. Nonetheless she’s able to maintain a positive attitude and view life positively, until she’s pushed to her limit…
MARTHA: (F, 20-50yrs)
A kind and caring mother. Hardened by years upon years of emotional abuse in an unstable environment. She has retreated inward and is unable to be present and care for her children emotionally.
DICK: (M, 25-60yrs)
The tyrannical father of three obedient boys and one unique daughter. Although he wants the best for his family, he’s stubborn and limited by his own unresolved past. Discipline and violence are what he knows, so he regurgitates this and in turn, slowly depresses those closest to him.
RON: (M, 12-18yrs)
Anna’s oldest brother, he is relatively kind and quiet but operates under a poignant fear of his dad. He adores his younger sister Anna, but is never able to stand up for her in the way he wants to. Nonetheless he remains her greatest confidant.
BEN: (M, 12-18yrs)
Anna’s middle brother, he is kind at heart and a true caretaker; he plays an essential role as he can relate to both his younger sister and his parents.

Anna’s youngest brother, he is constantly angry with everything and everything. Frustrated with both his younger sister and his dad’s rage, he has a tough time managing his emotions productively.
