The Standoff

Ryan and Cindy have begun to take each other for granted. When tempers flare over a forgotten sandwich, a true showdown emerges where the laundry is left in a heap and the tourtiere is left to rot on the counter.

A humorous look at love, loathing and egg salad sandwiches.

Filmmaker’s statement

“A darkly comedic look at a relationship on pause.

We cast the leads knowing they had had a relationship in the past, and although they had moved on by the time the film was shot, they were able to generate truthful rapport.”
