3. Why should this screenplay be made into a movie?

With women’s empowerment movements such as Time’s Up elevating consciousness about obstacles women encounter daily, both in their personal and professional lives, ​Discord​ seeks to highlight one such situation of employment disparity within the realm of classical music.

An experience, undoubtedly, far too many women will find relatable.
