The New Voice In My Head - Romantic Comedy (Rated PG) Set anywhere in US, Australia or the UK.
Logline: In a day and age where you can buy a new voice in your head, (such as the creative, healthy choices, calm, positive etc) frazzled single mom Loretta, hopes one can save her from insanity.
Synopsis: It is the year 2030. Loretta is a slightly overweight yet pretty, single mom in her late twenties to two, some may say, very hyper active boys. She finds life hard trying to hold down a job long enough to pay the rent and other bills that keep piling up.
In the middle of the usual daily drama, she sees an ad on TV to buy a new voice in your head and she starts dreaming of a way to make it happen. That night she loses her job.
Through her mom's neighbor she lands a job making pies in a local Pizza Parlor, where Dante, the new owner swears by the, 'motivational,' voice in his head. Loretta fits in well with the staff and starts to thrive there, however the bills keep one step ahead of her.
The real estate calls her one day to inform her that if she doesn't pay rent by the end of the week, she will be evicted. She hangs up and straight away, the phone rings again. She is hesitant to pick it up for fear of debt collectors, but it turns out to be her son's school saying that she has won $10,000 in a raffle.
She is over the moon, as that is exactly how much it costs to buy a new voice for her head. She gets the number of the clinic Dante got his from, and books herself in. She hears a positive voice in her head all the time and it changes her life for the better.
She finds the more she does, the more energy and time she has to do more. She works in the pizza parlor four nights a week, goes to the gym four days a week and has even started a cooking course online, as well as running around after the boys.
Loretta and Dante end up falling in love and go in to business together, however he is concerned that she isn't being honest with him about money. He wonders where she gets the money to shout them all to Disneyland and is both shocked and pleased to find out that the she never bought a new voice in her head after all. The new voice in her head that she hears, is actually his. Well, she hears what he would say in any given situation and that is what has spurred her on all this time.
