Surreal kinetic drama needs a resourceful location manager to find the final locations. We need 4 locations. 3 of them are acquirable(for short scenes). We haven’t found the other main location. The rest of the sets have already been picked out.


Estra Love is a surreal exploration on the exposure and condition of human identity and spirit. Set with moments of light-heartedness and brokenness, Estra navigates her night through two conflicting worlds – twilight and reality. She encounters various activities within the apartment that begin to haunt her surroundings – harsh tones, straight lines, blurry edges, the past and impending doom. Joie is aware of this state of despair and comes with a warm smile to distract her from the edges peeling off the wall. Card games, presents, sign language, jokes, real talk, go out the door. Joie’s gift to Estra lies within a box. Estra travels down a montage of dreams and reflections. Estra must learn to love and accept the biggest opponent she has ever faced – herself.

The story ‘Estra Love’ is an intense immersion into mental illness, self-care, awareness, and surrealism. Under all the cosmetics is love. How do we discover this love and have it come forth as a well that overflows. The film will hit the festival circuit leading up to the Academy. It will also be shown at educational institutions and establishments.
