When she comes across Adam, a young street musician selling his keyboard, she buys it on a whim under the pretense of wanting to learn piano. Suspicious and wary, Adam agrees and quickly finds himself stuck in an unsteady home with one feisty lady.

With time, Adam and Fall grow to enjoy each other's company, and a genuine friendship develops. Yet before Adam can explore this new-found life, his violent past resurfaces and threatens to destroy everything. Meanwhile, an irreparable secret Fall has been hiding starts to unravel.

When Fall's family gets involved, the two friends struggle to maintain control as their world collapses, leaving Adam with his unfulfilled promise to Fall, a promise so controversial as it is human.

Screenplay: The Marriage Myth

LOGLINE:

When a nerdy college professor’s old ways get crushed by a mysterious beauty he meets online, he must plunge into a quest for true happiness but ends up in a chaos of embarrassing misadventures that threaten to pull his entire family apart.
 

THE MARRIAGE MYTH is a broad, laugh-out-loud, outrageous romantic comedy about finding real happiness amidst an escalating drama of mythical Greek proportions. A middle-aged man, Bill Fritzky, and wife, Elaine, are stuck in a midlife crisis and a crumbling marriage. They are lured by a temptation to explore their sexual fantasies in secret. A series of hilarious misadventures explode in a climax that leads them both to find love in the most conspicuous of places.

Bill's dull and dreary life is indecently stripped of all layers of normalcy, when, on a whim, he allows his curiosity to get the better of him and decides to delve into a forbidden place. On the advice of his wild Russian colleague, Konstantin Skrulov, he tentatively enters a dating site for swingers to explore what he at first believes to be just a harmless fantasy. His fascination with Greek mythology and a strange coincidence ultimately lead to his undoing. He is 'seduced’ by a mysterious Greek Goddess, and his life begins to unravel with crazy, calamitous and also hilarious consequences.

THE MARRIAGE MYTH is “Crazy Stupid Love” having sex with “You’ve Got Mail”. It is a daring, character-driven story about discovering real happiness through surreal circumstances in our oh-so-modern world.

 

The Last Encore is available now on Amazon.com and all other Retailers.
