THE MAGNIFICENT QUARANTINOS  a 2020 tale

Category: Feature

Genre: Dramedy

Poster for Magnificent Quarantinos.jpg

Nate Blazer has a quarantine plan. Organize the house, master remote school for his kids, and be the quintessential spouse to his working wife, Casey - while keeping his beloved Grampa Vito safe. The Blazers are rocking this quarantine - right up until they aren't. When things spin out of control, Nate's anxious OCD personality is put to the test. Think Steel Magnolias meets the Pandemic - with a dash of Clark Griswold thrown in for good measure!

 

In six months she's lost her voice, her husband, her job and her friends. Sound dire? Well this romantic comedy proves that sometimes silence speaks louder than words. With quirky resilience, a spirited woman finds more than love – she finds herself.

BLAISE MADDOCH is resourceful. He has figured out how to manage on his government ration of two gallons of fresh water a week. He meticulously controls an organic garden in his spare room, composts in his unused bathtub, cleans himself and his clothes using alcohol and baking soda, paints beautiful pictures, pampers his cat, and reuses his urine. That doesn't stop him from dreaming of a time when water was plentiful.
