In the film, “Jill, a lonely, unfulfilled housewife with four children, paces on her dining room table with a belt around her neck, contemplating a desperate end.
Her husband, Bill, focused on his identity as breadwinner and an affair with a lusty co-worker, is as oblivious to Jill’s growing terror that she will do something destructive as he is to the panic at his unraveling company.
Marianna was the brains behind the scripts and story.

Written and directed by Jocelyn Towne, the indie drama I Am I is equal parts touching and heartbreaking, as it tells the story of a young woman named Rachael (also played by Towne), who meets her estranged father, Gene (Kevin Tighe), at her mother’s funeral.
Eager to get to know her father, Rachael tracks him down at an assisted living home, only to realize that Gene suffers from memory loss and not only thinks that he is still a young man, but is convinced that Rachael is actually her mother.
He also talked about what happened with his Fox TV series Us & Them, also starring Alexis Bledel, which Fox just announced it wouldn’t be airing, and his hope that it might be available online, at some point. JASON RITTER: Yeah, that’s basically how it first came around. When a friend gives you a script and asks you to be in their film, do you give them an honest opinion, if you really don’t like it, or do you just go along with it and do it?
I’ve been friends with Simon since I was 12, or something like that. They came up to me and told me that Jocelyn has written a script. RITTER: Well, you can try to give notes, or something, to try to help it out. I’ve definitely, and especially in the last couple of years, tried not to just do things as favors. But that’s usually an acquaintance, or someone I’ve known for awhile, or someone I’ve met a couple of times, and not someone this close to me.
This is such an emotionally touching and heartbreaking story.
