short story/ screenplay - student project

This is very basic, and I think a little unusual, but I hope I can make it work!

Five childhood friends get together after many years for a Christmas reunion, where they try to navigate awkward, troubled waters through conversation. They talk about nostalgic childhood memories and uncertain futures, the harsh reality of everyday life, and in time come to learn that one of them has a terminal illness, and this will probably be their last Christmas. The characters go through emotional ups and downs as they attempt to deal with feelings of regret, jealousy, grief, fear and guilt, and eventually, come to terms with their lives and accept the warmth of companionship.
