Sam, Dev & Ange
Sam, Dev & Ange (web series – Season 2 in production)
Dev is a single dad to 16 year old Sam, and the sole caregiver of his 80-something year old mother, Ange. Ange lives on her own and is determined to hold onto her independence despite her declining physical and mental health. Sam is lost, keeping locked up in his room most days, playing video games. Between work and home life, Dev is struggling to keep it together.
When Dev is running late for work one day, and concerned about this mother, he asks Sam to check in on her. Sam reluctantly agrees but finds himself enjoying her company and bonding with her over a smartphone. They begin to fill the void that exists in each of their lives and to Dev’s surprise, offer one another the kind of support he was not able to provide.
