Locked Down & Lonely

by

Locked Down & Lonely is a romantic comedy centred on two residents of a Milton Keynes apartment block during the tumultuous 2020 lockdown. With their plans for the year thrown into disarray by the approaching pandemic they are isolated and alone, only seeing friends and family remotely through the black box of online meetings. 

Otis and Sophia find themselves thrown together by necessity and circumstance in these unprecedented times. An unlikely friendship forms as they fight to maintain direction in the neverland of lockdown and their increasing contact becomes the highlight of the monotony of 2020. 

As the year progresses and both adjust to the new normal there begins the first murmurings of romance as each wonder if the friendship of convenience could be the start of something more, although fate seems intent on keeping them apart and ensuring they remain as friends without benefits.
