Synopsis

Co-written by Emily Plumb

In the wake of losing their child, a married couple must decide where their future lies: Is it with a romantic talking dryer who dreams of her homeland of IKEA? An adventurous 10-year old boy who dreams of true love and basketball camp? Or with leaving behind the memories that still haunt their home? 

The Conveniences of Modern Living is a fantastical, absurdly humorous and heartfelt look at the nature of love and loss, and what it takes to overcome tragedy and start anew.
