‘Gumballs’ is a short film, written and directed by Stephen Tronicek and produced by Joey Goldman.
Summary: A retired businessman descends into madness when a young man steals the one thing that makes him happy in life: Forcing his neighbor to pay him for picking up her sweet tree gumballs.

Character Breakdown:

~ GARY (60-75): Your typical man’s man. Like Don Draper aged into his 70's. Charismatic and confident, but hiding a deep insecurity underneath everything. Money makes his world go around. Not incredibly tall.

~ MRS. CLARKE (60-75): Looks like the sweetest grandmother you ever had, but still has some bite. Kind but a little spineless.

~ MAX (Male, 30s) - Boisterous, joyful and almost completely earnest. Wants to do things simply for the joy of doing them.

When: Beginning of October; Dates TBD
