The Blackout

It's almost Halloween and the airways buzz with worries about Hurricane Sandy, a storm headed up the coast and straight for New York City. New Yorkers go about their lives, including three roommates, ZOEY, LIZA, and JEN, who are throwing a hybrid Halloween and Sandy party. As their friends arrive, the winds pick up and tensions mount between the three roommates, who have to vacate their amazing apartment in 30 days' time. Abruptly, the lights go out, and a large section of New York is plunged into darkness. As their smartphones die and candles are lit, they connect and reveal themselves below the social (media) mask, surrendering to the purest form of human connection: face to face conversation amidst confections, libations, and confessions.
