CATA is a non-union indie short film.

Logline: After decades of trying to forget her, a hopeless romantic poet relives the last day of a summer love with the woman who got away.

YOUNG RUBEN: Male, 18-35, All Ethnicities. Ruben rarely falls in love. But, when he does, he goes head over heels. Such is the case with Catalina. He’s fascinated by her wit, beauty and way of living life at its fullest. Ruben’s had a crush on her for the last few months but was too scared to make a move. Now that he knows how she feels about him, he’ll do anything to make up the lost time in their last day together…LEAD

CATALINA: Female, 18-35, All Ethnicities. Catalina is an adventurous free-spirit. She is the type of person that dances no matter who is watching. For months, she’s been going out with Ruben hoping that he likes her. She sees in him the cute, sensitive and intellectual man that she wants to settle down with. Cata wants to live this moment as if it was their last day on Earth, because deep down she knows their time together is close to an end…LEAD
