Synopsis: A woman must come to terms with her husband’s gender identity as she deals with the expectations that come with being a wife. A powerful and endearing film about rediscovering the love we have for our significant other even through the most arduous times.
***Nina & Mason/Eve Marriage Notes: Nina & Mason/Eve are a married couple. There are some scenes where they kiss each other. There is no sexual intimacy in this film. However, they have been together 10 years so there must be love, emotional intimacy, and chemistry between them. Actors must be comfortable with this.
MASON/EVE RIVERA – LEAD ROLE – TRANSGENDER/NON-BINARY/LGBTQ+ – 25-38 YRS OLD, OPEN ETHNICITY
Transgender, non-binary, or LGBTQ+. Open ethnicity. Mason/Eve was born a male but feels they have always been a woman inside. Mason/Eve has been married to Nina for ten years and often feels uncomfortable in their own skin. Mason/Eve also struggles with their own insecurities of losing Nina and not being accepted for who they really are. After much debate with their self, Mason/Eve finally feels it is time to tell Nina the truth and must deal with the consequences and strain it has put on their marriage. Hopefully, Nina will realize their love can only grow stronger from here. Mason/Eve is currently in their early transition from male to female.
NINA RIVERA – LEAD ROLE – FEMALE – 27-35 YRS OLD – HISPANIC
Hispanic preferred or open ethnicity. Bilingual – English and preferred to be able to speak Spanish OR another language. Nina prides herself on being career-driven, self-motivated, fully functional, well dressed, and above all, comfortable with living “normal.” Nina is married to Mason (now Eve) Rivera. For the first time, she questions her role as a wife and the future of her marriage as her husband progresses through their transition from male to female. Nina struggles to find acceptance for Mason/Eve as she deals with her own emotional weight and fears of isolation, being misunderstood, and change. Her main objective is to save her marriage and raise her unborn child in a “normal” household with Mason/Eve at this time.
LORENA PEREZ – PRINCIPAL – FEMALE – 45-60 YRS OLD – HISPANIC
Hispanic preferred or open ethnicity. Bilingual – English and preferred to be able to speak Spanish OR another language. Lorena is Nina’s mother. Lorena is a widowed, out-spoken, and accessorized woman filled with love. She only wants the best for Nina and is concerned for her and her marriage to Mason/Eve. However, she is a very forward older woman who doesn’t really understand gender identity and puts blame on Nina for Mason’s coming out. Nina gets her views on a “normal” life and a traditional marriage from her mother.
