Float Me Up written by Daniel Talbott (Feature Screenplay)
Emma lives on her own in the house where she was raised, her parents both gone. She travels far out of New Orleans each week to care for her wayward brother Cody—their family a tightly closed island of two. When her brother makes a decision that breaks open her life and leaves her utterly alone, Emma emerges from the smallness of her existence and ventures into the chaos and swirl of the French Quarter and greater New Orleans, whose eclectic inhabitants, lost souls, and fellow travelers will either drown her or help her toward some new shore of possibility.
