Synopsis/Details: 

Intro:

This is an odd and quirky rom-com about two hapless guys struggling to do their very best during the Great Recession of 2008. The story is set in sunny south Florida or any place where there is lots of sunshine, palm trees and pastel colored stucco buildings – This would, of course, include SoCal.

This script contains a horn dog, a cuck, several air heads, some deviant behavior and a lesson for us all.

Synopsis:

Jack and Sam meet literally by accident and discover they have a great deal in common. Both are struggling to make ends meet, both have been thrown out by their wives and neither can afford the luxury of living alone. As they hope for happier days, Jack’s ex-wife demands conjugal visits because he can’t afford to pay alimony and Sam is still in love with his shallow and terminally self-absorbed wife – The one who ran off with her drop-dead-gorgeous yoga instructor the minute, or maybe just a little before, Sam lost all of his money day trading in the stock market. As matters go from bad to worse, Jack and Sam are forced to develop a new perspective on life. A love story for the rest of us with an almost happy ending.

The Writer: John Hunter

A curious nature has led me down many paths: former Peace Corps volunteer, big ticket sales, commercial graphics, and packaging design consultant to name a few. More recently, I’m an award winning and produced scriptwriter who enjoys telling a wide variety of slightly dark and quirky stories with a dash of humor. My dystopian horror Baby Soup won the 2013 Florida Independent Filmmakers Contest and five of my short scripts have been produced, including the whimsical Companion Shop which you can watch here . In July 2020, I declined an offer from mainland China for my mid-budget creature feature Snow Worms. Some of my work has been turned into short story and novella length ebooks . As a FREE...
