Lola’s Prayer

Tweetable Logline:
Lola buys a Chinchilla. Lola loses a Chinchilla. Lola thinks a Chinchilla is stuck in the tailpipe of her car.

Elevator Pitch:
Lola buys a Chinchilla from a farmer on the side of the road. By the time she gets home the Chinchilla is missing. Lola starts seeing hairs around the tailpipe of her car and becomes convinced the Chinchilla is stuck in her tailpipe. Her neighbor Mozzie tries to convince Lola to pray to the Virgin Mary and all things that trouble her, especially her Chinchilla problem, will be resolved. It’s a quirky, fun story about Lola’s steps to stop living in the past and get on with her future.

Production Team:
Director: Wade Sellers
Producer: Marycruz Figueroa
Associate Producer: Ben Lannigan

About the Production:
“This is quirky and touching story about a young woman who is stuck in her life but doesn’t know it. Her friends and family see it but her own stubbornness keeps her from moving forward. I read the original story and knew I could connect, add my own voice to this project. Her character reflects how we all can all reach a desperate time in our life and use any excuse to stay in an area of comfort rather than risk putting ourselves out in the world. It’s an original take on a theme we can all relate to.” – Wade Sellers
