The pens shall have their day

Alfred is an elderly playwright in declining mental and physical health. His inner voice, Anima, a trickster-esque young woman, is haunting him day and night. As his unhealthy lifestyle begins to take its toll on him, his play starts to become more and more bizarre and Anima is forced to make the tough writing choices he seems afraid to make. Between losing his wife, constant misunderstandings, drug and alcohol abuse, and general health problems, Alfred's reality is slipping more and more. The characters in his play seem to have a life of their own and Anima's level of control over the writing process is increasing by the minute. Even his real world exchanges are becoming more difficult to maneuver through. Will he finish his play before his life comes to an end?
