Out of the Woods

Synopsis: Casey and Tristan have always clashed where ideology is concerned. Despite the differences, Casey and Tristan have always been drawn to one another, sharing mutual friends. One weekend, Casey and Tristan, along with several friends, go on a camping trip that ends in tragedy. The group gets lost in the wilderness. Only Casey and Tristan survive. Eleven months later that their story truly begins. Both are still reeling from the traumatic events. They have not spoken to each other since the event. They agree to meet. The meeting results in the de-evolution of their friendship.

Character Breakdowns:

Casey

A bitter, pretentious, inconsiderate existential nihilist who views the world through thorn-laced rims and sees existence as something meaningless. He believes that death and suffering are the only things that human beings have in common and despises any optimistic suggestion. As a result of this, Casey challenges practically everything that Tristan says. Even with his thorniness, Casey is actually quite fond of Tristan and considers her to be one of the only people who truly understand him. Inversely, he has no love lost He fights hard to keep his emotions bottled up and doesn't want to admit that he's
harboring serious trauma.

Tristan

Optimistic by nature, Tristan is a thoughtful young woman who has always made an attempt to see the best in people. Although not technically religious, she places great value on the idea of achieving happiness through intangible means and believes deep in her heart that truly profound joy can be experienced. Since the traumatic events, she has not been able to see the world the same way. She and Casey witness the death of her close friend. She is still distressed by this. Having become reclusive she cloisters herself in a smoke-filled apartment and dwells on the past. Seeking closure, she suggests the meeting at Casey's house. She believes that by confronting their shared trauma, she and Casey can overcome the pain and get back to the way things used to be. Many times, she has questioned the relationship she's maintained with Casey over the years, owing to his nihilist perspective.
