Ashley and David are screenwriters.

Ashley and David are in love.

Like most artists, they have “day jobs” to bring in the money. But, Ashley just got fired from her catering job and David can't get enough photo shoots. To make matters worse, they are about to lose their home. Still, Ashley is dreaming of getting married. David doesn't want to get married until they sell a script. He wants his life in order, “all his ducks in a row.”

But, Ashley’s clock is ticking, LOUDLY. They have a script they believe in, a wonderful romantic comedy. With their agent’s help, they do the rounds. But, rejection follows rejection. What producers are looking for one week is obsolete the next.

Finally, it looks like their dreams may come true. Promises are made. But, then they find out one more executive needs to read the script. David is optimistic, but Ashley knows that does not sound good. It isn't. The executive reads ten pages and then it’s a gut thing. He passes and Ashley SNAPS. Desperate times call for desperate measures. She will do whatever it takes to get their script read.

In a crazy, madcap adventure that hurtles toward a rollicking finish, Ashley makes sure the producers hear their screenplay. With kooky characters making entrances and exits, a producer left for dead on the toilet, Ashley and David accomplish their goal.

Will they end up in jail or with their ultimate dream ...a bidding war?
