Verona (A Very Short Love Story)

 

Ten Minute Version Text

Synopsis:

Love blossoms on the I-90...
A woman yearns for life outside the tollbooth - and believes that her knight in rusting armour is in that line of oncoming cars. He will drive towards her, slow down almost to a stop, take his toll ticket and, before he speeds up again, give her a shy smile.
She knows where he lives.

Cast:

Theresa - 30
