“Loves Her Gun” is a cautionary tale of transformation, crime, guns, and hipsters. The narrative film follows Allie as she leaves Brooklyn, New York running away from a violent attack and an uneasy social life. She hooks up with an absurd band of karate rock musicians from Austin and embarks on a fast paced road trip across the south. As Allie struggles to find new ways to feel strong and in control here in her new environment, she walks the fine line between reasonable self preservation and paranoid withdrawal. As she spends more time on the shooting range than she does in her apartment, can she maintain healthy relationships, or will the weapons she uses to protect herself actually cause new problems worse than the ones she was fleeing?
- Sarah – Late 20s-late 30s. Very down to earth. Works with her hands. Good with guns. Protective, independent type. Originally envisioned as a native American, but open to anyone.
- Xoe – Early- mid 20s. Attractive, younger girl from Texas. Musician type. Still figuring things out, but very opinionated.
- Johnny – Early 20s- Early 30s- unwashed, pabst-drinking, Brooklyn hipster. Charismatic, but self centered. Cool dude, but treats his girlfriend terribly.
- Jo – early- mid 20s. jaded new Yorker. No nonsense.
- Husband/Wife neighbors –30s or 40s- working class couple. Friendly enough, but very foreign feeling to an educated girl from NY. Should both be likable but with a wilder edge.
- Guy at Bar Getting Tazed – 20 something bro.
