LA Festival Script: The Run Around, by Alex Leopardi, Jovanny Alfonso

Logline: All she wants is to reconnect with her deadbeat dad, but when he parties too hard one night, she’s dragged into a wild, hopeless hunt for his cell phone with photos that could land them both in deep trouble.

“The Run Around” combines elements of “We’re the Millers” and “The House.” Straight-A college freshman, JESSICA (Laura Marano-type), wants to reconnect with her father, DANIEL, after years of a rocky relationship. She even ditches her wild spring break plans to visit him. The problem is that he keeps forgetting he’s a father and that his daughter is in town to be with him. One nice day full of emotional conversation and re-connection, is followed by a night of partying for Daniel…without Jessica. When he returns, he’s in a daze, but he knows he’s in a jam that he can’t get out of on his own. In his drunken state, he thought he’d be able to get out of his debt to the area’s biggest drug dealer by catching him in mid-transaction on his cell phone. But it’s hard to be stealthy when you’re on countless drugs and alcohol. Now he needs help finding his phone before the dealer does something more than just make him settle his debt. Somehow, he ropes Jessica into helping him chase down his phone, though it won’t be easy. It’s one thing after another as father and daughter race around town chasing one foggy memory after another.
