Plot synopsis: Eliott Alsoran is a weakened man due to his wife’s and her recent decision to divorce him. His son, Riley, is still very young and sees the world through childlike eyes, wanting only for his father to be happy. When Eliott discovers that his wife, Sophia, may be infatuated with another man, he begins a desperate journey with his son to find the perfect gift for her. In the end, Eliott is left to discover that it’s not always about what we want but what we need, while Riley begins his journey to adulthood, leaving a small part of his childhood behind him.


Eliott Alsoran: A heavy hearted man currently struggling through a divorce, which he does not want, from his wife. He has a seven year old son named Riley who he loves dearly. Eliott is at the breaking point concerning his wife and he’ll do anything possible to convince her to stay. He believes she is seeing another man when she begins frequently wearing the man’s sweater jacket. Eliott’s quest in this story is to take his son out and simply find that sweater jacket to purchase for his wife. As Riley watches his father, he begins to understand that Eliott is so broken that he’s been reduced to a sweater as his last hope. Looking for a male of any race or ethnicity and anywhere between late twenties to late forties.

Riley Alsoran: A young boy of about 7 who just wants his dad to be happy. Riley has generally been a carefree boy in his young life and currently faces an uncertain future.
