Lila and Mo meet at a bus stop. Lila has a paralysing speech impediment. Mo is chatty and exuberant. Lila is preparing for her exams. Mo illegally races cars for a living. Opposites attract, and they fall in love. But Mo carries a secret burden.
“Mo and Lila are opposites, and yet similar. For instance, when Lila and Mo meet, I would like the audience to think, ‘this can never work’, and yet also think it can… that Mo’s roughness and Lila’s fragility could coexist and perhaps cancel each other out.”
