Winning LGBT Feature Screenplay: Circle of Illumination, by Trisha DiFazio

Simon, a shy introvert, and Rosie, a bon vivant, have been best friends since Kindergarten. After Rosie dies, Simon receives e-mails from Rosie’s account with detailed instructions as to how to spread her ashes throughout Europe. The problem is: Simon only has two weeks to visit four countries. Will Simon overcome his fears and carry out his best friend’s wishes in time? We follow Simon on an epic quest that turns out to be as challenging as it is illuminating.
