Development Pitch

The audience will experience a witty, fast-paced dose of romance and adventure whilst the heroine undertakes a journey that we can all identify with. From the fear of pushing outside of your comfort zone, to falling in love (twice!) and to the indecisiveness of knowing where to go next... It’s an internal journey laid bare, in an entertaining way. As a film adaption this will inspire, uplift and remind us that life is there for the taking. It's a chance to experience bucket-list adventures in exotic, jaw-dropping locations that are rarely focused upon in film. The humorous moments littered throughout will make the audience smile, laugh and cheer on Everly as she follows her path. From trekking to the summit of a volcano, learning to surf, volunteering with dogs and swimming with turtles, Everly grabs life by the horns and encourages us to do so alongside her. We all love a happy ending - it’s needed more than ever, given the times we’re living in – this story delivers that! In addition, the nature/volunteering theme that lightly runs throughout, is very relevant given the current trend of environmental awareness. The visually stunning locations, fast-paced plot, love interests, inspiring adventures and internal journey the heroine undertakes, as well as the twists and turns, make this the perfect film adaptation. You’ll want to dive right in, soak it up and share in the sunshine & positivity. It's a chick flick with depth and off the beaten track settings!
