77 of our Chicago actors and actresses were contacted to be a part of the upcoming film Leftovers.
Leftovers is a short film about a quirky girl named Deb who, tired of her trivial small town life, decides to leave her best friend and go to college. Before she leaves, the two make a pact to stay friends forever, toasting to an unbreakable bond. Five years later, Deb returns home for her best friend's funeral - so that they can go on one last adventure together. This dark comedy is a story of a woman seeking meaning in change and purpose in human connection, while making light of death and the abruptness of life and ultimately accepting forgiveness. In dealing with grief, we often find life ridiculous and unfair. We face great despair, we feel overwhelmed by fear, and we search for meaning in all of the wrong places. But somewhere along the way, we accept reality and seek forgiveness. It's this moment of self-realization in which we are reborn as individuals - and that's what Leftovers is all about.
