Project of the Day: Facing Life with a 'Broken Leg'

“Broken Leg”

Tweetable Logline:

Karla needs a student loan. If she babysits her brother-in-law who has a broken leg and overcomes his hijinks, endless college is hers.

Elevator Pitch:

‘Broken Leg’ is about Karla, a perennial college student who’s afraid to face the real world. She needs her older sister, Kate, to co-sign on yet another student loan. As a test, Kate asks Karla to babysit her husband, Theo, who recently broke his leg. Karla thinks this will be an easy way to prove her responsibility but little does she know that Kate and Theo are expecting a baby. So Theo views this weekend as his last chance to party before becoming a father. ‘Broken Leg’ is a movie about the helpless learning to help each other.
