Toronto Coach House I: Davinder’s Decision
This Sleepover—in downtown Toronto—unfolds in a horse stable-turned-open-concept loft. No horses, no hay. It looks more like the set of Friends, with bright sofas and Pottery Barn nic nacs.
Davinder Mahli, 18, arrives out of breath and frazzled. He got lost in a cab on the way over. Davinder is passionate about theatre, and has written award-winning plays. He won a scholarship to the University of Calgary theatre program, but Davinder had his heart set on York University. So, his devoted parents worked hard and saved their money to send him there.
Now, Davinder is losing his inspiration, and considering switching majors, but doesn't have the heart to break it to his parents.
Can two people he's never met before shine a light on a future path?
