Storyline

When author Vinnie Judith Rosenberg loses her inspiration to write, her friend Jamie suggests going into public venues and observing random people. Vinnie takes the recommendation and, inspired by brief encounters with strangers, she creates three humorous shorts: "Delivery," which finds two couples from very different class levels sharing a maternity room; "What's Included?" spies on three older-than-they-should-be college girls debating whether or not they should room together; and "Peter Kills Himself," following a suicidal man whose attempts to end it all are thwarted by random phone calls, pesky neighbors and the new girl upstairs who was just looking to borrow some sugar. Written by B+Boy Productions

Trivia

Film is based off three short plays: "Delivery" by Greg North, "What's Included" by Rose Wasielewski, and "Peter Kills Himself" by Frank Anderson. Originally performed on stage at the University of Wisconsin - Milwaukee in May 2007 as part of the campus festival "Just Shy of Normal." Producer Jason Paul Collum enjoyed the performances, optioned the rights from the student writers, adapted them for the screen and wrote his own wrap around segment "The Author" to tie the stories together. Most of the original lead stage cast re-created their roles for the film. See more »
