Synopsis/Details: 

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

Hi, my name is John and I’m a writer... Sent away to school to get a fancy education, my family proudly referred to me as bilingual for an ability to speak both Standard American English and my native Cracker. After graduation from a large brick and mortar university, a curious nature has taken me down many paths in life: Former Peace Corps Volunteer complete with whip worms and malaria, big ticket sales engineer, commercial graphic artist, international packaging design consultant, recovering golfer and more recently, an award winning and produced scriptwriter. My voice is character driven, slightly dark and quirky with a dash of humor. Many of my shorts have been showcased on Shootin’ The... Go to bio
