COAST

Comedy. Drama. Music

For 16-year-old Abby, home is the last place she wants to be. Abby’s small town trappings and her mother’s unlived dreams are closing in on her when she falls in love with the lead singer of a touring rock band who introduces her to a world of possibility and self-expression. With an exciting ensemble cast and live music performances, COAST is a diverse coming-of-age story that shows that true courage means showing up for your life and living in your own truth.

Why Coast?

When writer Cindy Kitagawa and her childhood friend, Executive Producer Wendy Guerrero, had a discussion with producing partner Bruce Dern about the women they had become after growing up together in our hero location, Santa Maria, CA, they knew there was a story there. To tell it, they set out to authentically represent what it was like to grow up as young women of mixed heritage, who seldom saw women like themselves in history books, television shows, or films.

COAST is the moment right before womanhood when your friends are your life and music is your soul. It’s THE BREAKFAST CLUB for young women in 2018 with a live rock soundtrack.
