This film is a two-hour innovative feature that is made up of a collection of short films made during the lockdown. Margaret Nagle initiated the project when she asked actor-director families and friends to come up with stories about life stuck inside.
The results of her ask turned into shorts about “a couple stuck together after a one night stand, kids scheming to run away from their paranoid dad, a divorced couple isolating together for the sake of their dog, and a widow dealing with her grief.”
