A Hollywood pro with writing credits including Dawson’s Creek, Garcia is premiering her film “The Lifeguard” in U.S. Dramatic Competition at this year’s Sundance Film Festival.

A former valedictorian who quits her reporter job in New York and returns to the place she last felt happy: her childhood home in Connecticut. She gets work as a lifeguard and starts a dangerous relationship with a troubled teenager.
