JUST 18 SUMMERS® Movie
The Just 18 Summers screenplay was written by Marshal Younger, Michelle Cox, and Torry Martin. The script reached the semi-finals of the $50,000 Kairos Prize competition.
Parents panic when they realize the 18 summers with their children are zooming by way too fast. But they each handle it differently. One family crams as much fun and imparts as much wisdom as they can into the last summer. Another family plans for the birth of their first child . . . but are they really ready? A brawny construction worker scrambles to connect with his girly-girl daughter after his wife’s death. A businessman and his always-busy wife miss it all. Will these families realize before it’s too late that they can’t go back and rewind yesterday?
