Despite being a 24-hour time limit, I'm not sure I've put this much time into any script I've done for this competition. I was awake for the whole 24 hours and spent almost all of it writing and rewriting.

Reprise
Sixty-five years after the disappearance of his fiancée,
the cynical owner of a piano bar gets the closure he never expected.

It's a ton of genres at once -- romance, drama, mystery, adventure, thriller, fantasy, tragedy, ghost story... But I guess if I had to boil it down to one, I'd say romance.

Not too sure about Genre. We filled in Thriller, Drama on the form but there's at least one scene that everyone agrees is Horror. So...Drillor?
