After failing to fix her broken life and bad habits with self-help books, a desperate woman returns to the New Age bookstore and demands a refund for her life. The store manager however, offers her a more lucrative option. Accept death and while in purgatory, write a self-help book.
VERA (Gender: Female, Age: 45-70)
Vera has read every self-help book on the market, bought all the crystals and chanted every mantra but she did not transcend the negative emotions that bother the rest of us. She’s spent so much time with her nose in the books to “be better”, no one was left when she looked up.
SHANTI (Gender: Female, Age: 30-55)
Shanti is the store clerk at the new age bookstore, the gatekeeper. She walks the line between oblivious and trickster genius. Is she ignoring you, seeing through you or pushing you past the brink of your own limits?
THEA (Gender: Female, Age: 50-80)
Thea is the manager at the new age bookstore. She has seen it all and knows that this too shall pass. She is peace and understanding incarnate.
