Winning SHORT Screenplay Reading: Kismet, by Bethany Northcott

Fifteen-year-old Anna has cancer. What’s worse, to her, is the truth she’s living with. It would break her single, devoted father’s heart, but she doesn’t want to fight the disease. She’s ready to die. In Kismet, Anna comes to terms with her decision to stop fighting her disease as her quality of life is consistently degrading. All the while, a new unlikely friend is changing her life in ways she cannot even see. Dealing with themes of disease, suffering, family, and redemption, the film considers the divine element at work in seemingly finite situations while also exploring the concept that our lives, while individual and unique, are also shared with those we love.
