Dreamland

by Jason Matzner Debut Competition

Eighteen year old Audrey lives with her agoraphobic father in a remote community in the New Mexico desert. Though Audrey longs to go to college, she spends her days taking care of her father and her best friend Calista, who dreams of becoming Miss America but is struggling with Multiple Sclerosis. The summer after Audrey graduates from high school, her world is changed forever when an attractive young man named Mookie moves in next door. Knowing how much Calista longs for romance, Audrey encourages Mookie to ask Calista on a date. He obliges, and he and Calista soon become a couple. Audrey, however, finds herself developing feelings for Mookie, and as these feelings grow it becomes harder and harder for her to be the dependable, selfless person that her father and best friend have always counted on her to be.
