The Never List

Logline

The Never List is a humorous and poignant coming of age dramedy about Eva, a straight-laced, academically gifted young woman whose carefully planned teenage life is derailed following the unexpected death of her childhood best friend.

Synopsis

16-year old Eva is as over achieving as they come. She is running for student class president while juggling a heavy academic schedule and planning the upcoming homecoming dance. Along with her childhood best friend, Liz, Eva enjoys going to comic book conventions, where she dreams of becoming a famous comic book artist – something she knows her helicopter parents would never support. Since 2nd grade, the girls have played “dress up” while pretending to be two not-so-straight-laced girls named “Vicky” and “Veronica.” Together, they imagine their alter-egos doing highly questionable and even illegal acts that Eva and Liz would never do themselves. Acts they document in a list they coined “The Never List.” When Liz suddenly dies in a tragic accident, Eva is filled with anger and regret thinking about all the things Liz never did out of fear of risking her future…a future she ultimately would never have. Eva decides the best way to honor her best friend’s memory is to complete The Never List. At first this journey leads her to romance and adventure, but as the list progresses, her actions begin threatening the very foundations of her carefully planned teenage life and even her own future.
