Genre: Personal drama/mumblecore
Pitch: Best friends Erin and Ada must band together as they face unemployment in a man’s world. But their pasts, tainted with sexual harassment, blackmail and a criminal record, threaten both their friendship and chance of employment.
Outline: Quirky and laid back best friends Erin and Ada are struggling to make a place for themselves in the world. Erin is rejected again and again for her dream job whilst Ada refuses to settle on any one thing, currently working as a "save the bees" campaigner. When Erin is evicted she is forced to think more seriously about her future as Ada assists with her unique schemes by taking her into her home, helping her build her strength and inventing business ventures for them both. Yet an underlying friction grows ever more apparent, until it finally comes to a head on board a canoe, courtesy of Ada’s latest job scheme. Ada who has a criminal record after blackmailing Erin’s former boss in a bid to stop him sexually harassing Erin, blames her for never coming forward and for making employment almost impossible. Meanwhile, Erin blames Ada for getting involved and losing her her dream job and also blames herself for her boss’s actions. The pair are left furious and stranded in open water. After heading to the high street, Erin observes the diversity and strength of everyday women and finally comes forward to the police. She then returns, red eyed and clearly distressed. Ada recognises what she must have done and provides comfort before lightening the mood with a crude joke. The pair laughs together, recognising that they can now face the world of work and the difficulties it may provide together.

Main focus of the film. Smart and witty. She is a little reserved and doesn't like to create unnecessary fuss. She has a great humour that bounces off of her friend Ada's crude comments. She doesn't want to accept help and would rather find her own way. She has very little self-pity and values inner strength. The way she dresses is very thrown-together but she doesn't care .
Female, aged 21 to 26
