"Day Out of Days"
Day Out of Days is about a once well known actress who struggles to
maintain her sanity & dignity in the obstacle course known as
An actress just about to turn 40 wakes up to find she's not as
valuable to her business as she once was. She struggles to find her
place, while deciding if that's the place she wants to be. It's a
mirrored situation to what women go through. As we age, we gain
experience, knowledge and understanding while fighting to keep our
youth. Instead of focusing on this shift where, yes, we lose the power
of our youth, women should be empowered by gaining a perspective that
carries us through the second half of our lives.
