FALLING TOGETHER – A CHRISTMAS DRAMA

It is the night before Christmas, and everyone is asleep- well – almost everyone. In this short family drama, the promise of a white Christmas is within reach, children are quarrelling, and someone’s missing. That’s what Julie, 40s is dealing with. Her three teenage children, Joziah 18, Karina 17, and Shawn 15-years old bicker constantly. Julie’s husband Mark (40s) is mostly absent because of his commitment to the military in this Christmas drama.

Karina and Joziah are constantly at each other’s throats and Shawn is often caught between his siblings. Joziah’s difficulties have resulted in fights at school and an explosive secret he is keeping from his family. When Mark shows up, Julie is relieved, and there is peace – temporarily. Very soon the peace is disrupted when the family catch Mark up on what he has missed. Tempers flare, and Joziah storms out as the snow falls on the ground. The family attempt to patch things up and search for Joziah, hoping to not only bring him home but also deal with the consequences of a secret that may tear them apart.
