OPEN-ENDED TICKET is a Finalist for the 2019 Sundance Screenwriting Competition! It was also a finalist for the 2018 Sundance-Sloan Screenwriting Competition.
Kelly Turner has recently adapted her NY Times bestselling book ‘Radical Remission’ into a fictional, feature-length screenplay entitled OPEN-ENDED TICKET.
This emotionally moving film tells the story of a cancer patient who takes her best friend on an around-the-world journey to try to find her estranged father before it’s too late. In their race against time, a string of unexpected events makes them question everything they thought they knew about life, death, and healing.
We are in the process of bringing executive producers and financiers on board for this film. If you or someone you know would be interested in becoming involved, please email us at [email protected]. Note: Kelly Turner is represented by Frankfurther, Kurnit, Klein & Selz, P.C. on this project.
