Set against the backdrop of the War in Afganistan in the 2000’s, an aspiring artist welcomes home the veteran who inspired her to follow her dreams, only to find he’s not the well-adjusted man she once knew.
Jeanette Dilone is a native New Yorker, born and raised in upper Manhattan. Though Jeanette’s first passion was classical ballet, she fell in love with acting during her college years at Columbia University, where she double majored in Theater and Psychology. Since then, her acting work has spanned numerous mediums. Her TV credits include roles on Homeland (Showtime), Blue Bloods (CBS), Lucky 7 (ABC), and Golden Boy (CBS.) Her film credits include the independent films “James White” starring Chris Abbott, “The Outskirts,” starring Victoria Justice, and “Exposed” starring Keanu Reeves. She has done commercial work for McDonald’s and the Ad Council, and she can be seen online in various sketches for Collegehumor.com. Currently, Jeanette is expressing her passion for other aspects of the filmmaking process. With the short film “Return,” which she wrote, produced, starred in and directed, she hopes to reintroduce herself to the industry as not only an actor, but also a filmmaker in her own right.
