About this submission
My short script, Footwork, is about a young unnamed woman in a small New-Mexican desert town that gets caught up in a dangerous situation, all because she wanted to learn how to roller-skate in peace. At the beginning of the story, she can not move more than a few feet on skates before falling. But she always gets back up. Throughout the story, that determination is tested, with her life depending on her ability to get back up every time she falls.
