Project Details

Short Synopsis:  Sydney and her best friend Maddie play in a pretend castle built out of a massive blanket fort built in Sydney’s room. They dub themselves queens of the land. Mary enters the room to let Maddie know her mom is here. Maddie and her mom go home and live right across the street, it has a sold sign on the front lawn. Maddie and Sydney spend the rest of the night communicating with flashlight flickers into each others bedroom windows. Maddie talks to Sydney next about how big their next house will be and Maddie thinks it’s so cool but is soon disappointed when her mom tells her it’s too far to visit often. Maddie moves away, the fort is cleaned up and no one is in Maddie’s room to shine the light back. Mary reminds her that it’s only a “see ya later”, not goodbye.
