Brief Synopsis:


Kara and Luke are co-stars and friends, often mistaken for a couple, but a bonding experience off-set lets them know they have even more in common. Once the pandemic shuts down their film, they must self-isolate. Having no one to turn to, they decide to quarantine together.


As they push each other's boundaries, learn about their relationships and upbringing, and explore their chemical reaction to each other - a perfect environment is created for a romance to flourish.


Alas, they still have to navigate the "new normal", made even more real by Luke's asthma. New trials come with the industry opening back up, Luke's co-star driving them apart, and a sickness of a one.


This whirlwind of a romance will leave you empathizing, laughing, taking sides, and reminiscing about the quarantine like never before.

Film comps:

After being submitted to Oscar-qualifying festivals (Cannes, Venice, TIFF, Tribeca, etc.) and doing the festival circuit, our plan is to be picked up by a streaming service (like Netflix, HBO Max, Tubi, etc.) or distribute through a company we have working relationships with.
