Synopsis:
Ted and his daughter Sophia live alone. It is a life largely made up of basic routines: day after day Ted goes out and Sophia cooks and cleans. Their interactions are laconic and brief, but throughout we sense that there is an underlying conflict they deal with, even if they never express it verbally. The film is a brief window into this life and relationship. There is no dialogue, and actors will be encouraged to collaborate with the creative team in order to tell this story in a realistic and simple manner.

Characters:
Sophia, FEMALE, 6-8 (Not auditioning this role at this time, but please state interest) A young girl, full of life, living with her father and learning about the world. A happy child with an inquisitive mind and a fearless approach to the world around her.

Sophia, FEMALE, 16-22
A young woman, still with that same fearless approach but with the burden of knowing more about the people she once relied upon.

Ted, MALE, 35-50 (Actor will play both younger (35s) and older (45s) version of Ted)
Ted is a worn man.
