Six to Wash (Screenplay)
Synopsis: Nate is destroyed by a recent tragedy and is working to cope with the world around him, defined in the simplest way he can find. Six quarters to wash a load of laundry, five to dry it. Nothing is even. He has to stay clean.
To lose a loveable partner is miserable but it’s unimaginably worst to be the reason for the loss. The script is well build from start to end. Transition between past to present is well narrated. Nate‘s frustration and his emotions consumed with guilt is absolutely relatable. But drugs and suicide is not the only solution. And what is the relevance of the repetitive lines of washing and drying here? Overall it was a great read and a well written screenplay.
