Written by Matthew Whittet

It’s about a single woman in her early 40s trying to go on a date, and a single guy who has an unreasonable fear of not being heard over loud music in bars. There may not be any ugly sisters but there’s the occasional mysterious animal. There’s midnight. There’s a show. There’s dancing. And there’s beautiful transformation.
