Kate Bond is a Vancouver lawyer, the mother of a young child – and an aspiring writer. She has written eight novels, showing most of them to nobody. In the winter of 2015, she decided to try her hand at screenwriting. She was busy – with a full-time job working as a litigator at the federal Department of Justice, an 18-month-old son who wasn’t always sleeping through the night, and a husband who worked night shifts as a firefighter. Still, over the course of eight weeks, Ms. Bond wrote most of the first draft of a film script during her commute.
