Synopsis:

Shawnna has been a working actress for one of the largest studios in LA for the past four and a half years. Nearing the end of her five-year player contract, she discovers that she has a degenerative eye disease and fears she’ll be let go by the head of the studio. Turning to her mentor and frequent director, Kris, the two decide to work out a day-to-day routine and system of codes to keep up normal appearances around the studio. At first, it works like a charm, but as Shawnna begins to lose more and more of her sight she must be honest about her situation in order to make the most of it - showing anyone who doubts her there is no blind luck, only blind talent. BLIND TALENT is a heartfelt comedy/drama that deals with the issues of challenging conformity and the social hierarchy.
