TABLESCAPE by Jeanette D. Farr
On-Demand Streaming Nov. 13 – Nov. 16: Watch now for $20
Joe and Pratt are world travelers who love a great adventure, but it is time to settle down and think about a family. Pratt prepares a lavish “tablescape” for what is supposed to be a site visit with their lawyer and the teenaged mother of the child they intend to adopt. But when only the “baby mama” shows up and unravels the details of the potential adoption, what was meant to be a perfect brunch quickly spirals – plates get broken, babaganoush flies, and despite their best intentions (and attempts to meditate), not everything can be fixed. Each finds that there is beauty in broken things, and the cracks in the foundation might be what makes a person whole.
