Lou, Who Can Taste Words (a Ten Minute Screenplay)

Updated: Feb 28, 2019


Ten-year-old Lou Boult's ability to taste words comes in handy when a younger schoolmate, Alex Whittaker, goes missing.



From the screenwriter...


Lou Boult is a normal ten-year-old, who happens to have a form of synasthesia which causes her to taste words when she hears or reads them. Bow tie tastes like raspberries; Jetski tastes like grape jelly, and Volcano tastes like tomato sauce. For Lou, it's part of who she is, and she's never had a use for it... until now. When Lou's schoolmate, Alex, goes missing, she finds new and incredible uses for her talent.
