LOGLINE: Loyalty versus self-preservation becomes vital when ex-lovers find themselves in a chance encounter. Will they revisit the past or unburden themselves of the remnants of their destructive relationship?

SYNOPSIS: The Space Between is the triggering journey of two past lovers who, by happenstance, run into each other during their individual hotel stays. Ja’Von, ego-serving, seeks to affirm that Jenny is still the loyal lover she’s always been After reluctance, Ja'von convinces Jenny to give him a moment of her time. After agreeing to 10 minutes to talk, Jenny struggles with her attempts to break free from the love she has for Ja’Von. The space between their last encounter and the present moment proves more complicated than either could imagine. Destructive elements of their relationship are revealed, along with heartbreaking secrets that could stunt positive resolution. Freedom, self-perseverance, and disrupting destruction are themes each character battles. Distance and time prove the capacity of their love and loyalty. The choice: oneself and liberation or entering a repeated, failed cycle of trauma bonding disguised as love. The decision can set one free and imprison the other.


The themes for The Space Between are self-preservation, the expiration of loyalty, love versus freedom, and disrupting destruction. Both characters have to make decisions based on their interests, although they have different goals. Jenny wants to be free from Ja’Von’s hold, and Ja’Von wants to have and control Jenny when he pleases. They both want the other to fold. Love doesn’t always last, and loyalty can fade with the loss of love, yet, Ja’Von believes he’ll always have commitment and passion from Jenny.

He might be correct if the circumstances played out differently. Jenny is tired of loving and being loyal with no reward. The ultimate test of her exhaustion comes when she must choose between protecting Ja’Von or herself.
