Synopsis/Details: 

HADLEY YOUNG is in her early thirties. A college dropout who studied forensic pathology, she took over the family business, Forever Young Funeral Services, following the death of her father. She's beautiful, long flowing blond hair with bright green eyes that pierce right through you.

Hadley wants what we all want, love, acceptance, however; growing up in the family funeral home didn't make her the most popular girl at school. Frequently making her the subject of ridicule, coupled with the fact her mother suffered from mental illness, and died "accidentally" when Hadley was a child. This resulted in her often feeling unworthy, allowing herself to be exploited in the hopes of fitting in. A chaos magnet she finds herself drawn to toxic situations and keeps her circle of trust small.

A deeply troubled woman with undiagnosed bi-polar disorder and an addictive personality. To cope she parties hard and is promiscuous. Manic and at the end of her rope hanging on for dear life. Stuck in quicksand. The harder she struggles the deeper she finds herself sinking, dragging down with her, the people closest to her.

A master manipulator, Hadley's also strong willed, hyper intelligent, and very capable when it suits her.​
