Synopsis: A Comedy

Premise: A sense of entitlement is defined as "an unrealistic, unmerited, or inappropriate expectation of favorable living conditions and favorable treatment at the hands of others." Over 282,000 People are bullied each month in a year. This number is still growing.

"Entitled" is written to bring light on a lot of relevant things today. Oftentimes, you stray away from who you are to fit in, and in the process you are faced with the possibility of losing yourself entirely. At the same time, many people have a sense of entitlement, and it always stems from something. This piece is written to make fun of a social hierarchy that embodies the disrupted and the disruptees.

Alexa has grown up in a neighborhood that has your standard state of living. There are nice walls, okay streets, and lots of potholes. As college comes to a close, Alexa looks back on her life and all the bullying, name calling, and degrading moments she went through. She decided this isn't the life she wants to live. She wants more. This last year was the last time anyone would dare try to make a fool of Alexa. She begins popping her pimples, shaving anything and everything, plucking her eyebrows, molding herself into the perfect aesthetic influencer. She hides every single imperfection, and becomes a master of illusion. A master of perfection. She develops a love for vlogging, and becomes the best in the industry, topping magazine covers and tapping into modeling. She begins to think she owns the world and nothing else matters. She develops the feeling that she is the only one in power, and everyone revolves around her. Desperate to correct and cover an image that was never broken-- She becomes the one thing she always feared. The one thing that kept her up at night. A "Karen". Will she rediscover herself, and learn that no matter who you are nothing is guaranteed? Will she learn the value and virtue of patience? Will she learn that her imperfections and flaws were never broken to begin with, or will society corrupt her to the point that she and her manners cease to exist altogether?

Her dream begins in the world of fashion, but changes as she finds her passion for cosmetics. Life seems perfect but if you put love first, how much will you suffer? Scarlett feels obligated to save her relationship as it endures changes. The pressure builds so much that she is persuaded by her partner to film a sex tape, but she instantly regrets doing so. Her lover, Zane, threatens to release their tape to the internet unless she agrees to wire $350,000 to him in two weeks. He has her in a manipulative headlock, and she is silenced. Suddenly, Scarlett feels her life crashing down on her. She is trapped in the life that she eagerly wanted to escape: a rich kid only wanted their money. How will she gain her partner's "respect" while preserving her own name in the process?

In what seems instantaneous, she is forcefully grabbed and shoved in the man's car. She wakes up with a dull headache in a penthouse in Manhattan, and hardly pieces together what has happened to her.
