***The script is currently written with the intention of this project to be a Thai film. So we are looking for actors who are fluent in Thai.***

Synopsis: A son takes his mother to the airport with an indefinite separation ahead of them, prompting the two to show a side of themselves unknown to the other.

Marlee (Mother, late 30s-mid 50s): With her two sons off to college, she is at a loss of purpose and is unable to see where her life is heading. She is a very caring, selfless, and sensitive person. This goodbye with her son brings her thoughts and fears together, causing her to react differently.

Jen (Son, late teens-mid 20s): A responsible young man with a bright future ahead of him. Like his mother, he is at a transitional time in his life with his younger brother in another city and his parents moving to another country. It is becoming more and more difficult for him to deal with the pressures of adulthood.
