Cass is a twenty-four-year-old preschool teacher who has spent the last year of her life consumed with heartbreak after Greg, her ex-boyfriend, left her for someone else. One evening, Cass's very patient and loyal best friend, Samantha, brings Cass to a lesbian party, in an effort to find romance and to get Cass out of the house. At the party, Cass, who is supposed to be Sam's wing-girl, meets Amanda, a mysterious and intriguing party-goer who nobody actually invited. Amanda attempts to seduce Cass, and although Cass is intrigued, it's very clear that she's still hung up on Greg. Amanda convinces Cass to confront Greg, but when she does, she discovers something nobody saw coming.
Becca Roth has always loved telling stories. She made her first short film as a shy seventeen-year-old, and after experiencing the terrifying vulnerability of putting herself out there and showing her work to an audience, she knew she wanted to spend the rest of her life making movies.
After college, she wrote and directed Rain in Summer, an independent short film about love, loss and self-acceptance. It went on to screen at dozens of film festivals and picked up several awards along the way.
Becca's first feature-length documentary, One: A Story of Love and Equality, screened all over the country and won dozens of awards.
Lucky Penny is Becca's on-screen acting debut. She can't wait to share this film with the world!
She works as a freelance producer, and lives in Brooklyn with her fiancée and two dog-like cats.
