the story behind the story
It was probably in 2000 that I wrote this script. It was inspired by a moment of reality. I was in, I think, Bay Station in Toronto. I found a book that was on top of a payphone that I was using. I opened it up and I was like, “Oh someone forgot this here.” There are lots of people that would do a various spectrum of things with found property and I was like, “At least if I take it, I know someone is gonna get it back.” Of course, I didn’t know that Bay station was lost and found. I took the book and understood it had a personal nature to it. It was a day planner. It wasn’t a journal but it had very personal little things in it. Like one of them was a list, this year things to do – finish a degree, fall in love. So, I ended up taking it and sifting through it and, in the doing, getting kind of a sense of parts of this person. I found some numbers, so I dialed them and said, “Hey, there’s a person in Toronto that you might know that had your number in their book, so maybe you could help me track this person down.” And it worked.
