THE FOREVER

Dave, a graphic designer in his mid-20s, sells his beloved 60’s muscle car to buy an engagement ring in a desperate attempt to propose to his girlfriend and keep her from moving to New York for grad school. Along the way he crosses paths with Taylor, a young girl fleeing from her own demons, who helps Dave by prying into his mind, trying to rationalize his repressive tendencies and forces him re-evaluate his relationship and what’s important to him in a way that guides him to assess at his own stubborn nature.

Characters:
