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.

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.

Please enjoy the first pages of No-So-Perfect Romance and thanks for the read.

The Writer: John Hunter

A curious nature has led me down many paths in life: former Peace Corps volunteer, big ticket sales engineer, commercial graphic artist, packaging design consultant, recovering golfer and more recently, an award winning and produced scriptwriter. Many of my shorts have been showcased on Shootin' The Shorts - Three of these have been produced, several optioned and another is now in post-production. My dystopian horror short Baby Soup won the 2013 Florida Independent Filmmakers Contest, was adapted and produced. Some of my work has been turned into quick and easy to read entertainment. These are essentially Director’s Cuts written in not-so-wordy prose. As a FREE sample, see Zentangles , a... Go to bio
