Project: Moving On

 Everyone has been in a dark place at one point or another in their lives. We often call it the darkness, our nightmare. What I went through was the darkest time of my life. Often times we can compare it to being pushed down a dark hole and we're falling deeper and deeper into the darkness. We reach our hand out to the light above us but it keeps getting further and further away. From my experience and writing my script, I was able to get through the darkness and see the light again. The light for me was my happiness. There is a quote that read " in order for one to be reborn, their water must break." What this means is whatever pain you're going through, whatever darkness you're going through, whatever nightmare you're going through, sometimes we have to break and by break I mean with our emotions. The message I want my viewers to feel is that there is always a light at the end of the tunnel. If I can get through my darkness so can they. I've moved on.

Melanie Parker is an openly gay female who decided to give one last guy a chance after not dating one for many years. He is manipulative, possessive, and is anti-lbgt. She goes through what she called 'her nightmare' when it came to getting away from her ex. She meets a trans female and the two form a romantic companionship.
