An unconventional love story set in the near future where single people, according to the rules of The City, are arrested and transferred to The Hotel. There they are obliged to find a matching mate in 45 days or risk being transformed into beasts and sent off into The Woods.

A delicious satire on modern relationships, societal conventions and our willingness to conform.
