Synopsis/Details: 

Wishbone

A world famous self-help writer -- broken and dejected from a loss he cannot overcome -- is visited by an enigmatic neighbor who feels she owes him a debt of gratitude for helping her, and many others overcome their battles with grief, inspired by his writings.

Humbled, yet overwhelmed by her story, Nick looks to the past for comfort, wishing that he could go back, even for just a moment, to change the events of a day that led to his seemingly everlasting torment.

But what if that wish came true? How would it change the course of his life, and more importantly, the lives of the ones he helped, albeit through his own terrible grief?

(PLEASE NOTE: This script (Wishbone) was produced and shot under the title: ADRIFTING)

The Writer: J.B. Storey

I originally hail from the UK, but now reside in Seattle, WA. Over the years I've written award-winning feature length & short screenplays. As well as award-winning stage plays (Last Cup of Sorrow, Wolves at the Door). I've had four pieces of my work produced for screen and stage: An Angel Whispers (short film), Adrifting (short film), Good Deeds (short film), and Last Cup of Sorrow (stage play). These days I write, because it's a creative outlet, and I enjoy the process. I like telling stories. Exploring new worlds. Letting my imagination run wild. For me it really is about the journey. Not the destination. Go to bio
