Neal is a good guy pushed too far in MISSED CONNECTIONS, a comedic romance for today's internet savvy dating scene. He's recovering from a gruesome breakup and a banal job, but rather than confront his problems head on, with the help of some loyal friends Neal finds the perfect distraction on the Craigslist Missed Connections page. Lonely women write posts describing details of chance encounters, a little eye contact, or a passing glance that could have been their knight in shining armor, only he got away. Now they are hoping he's searching the same internet back pages. What could be easier than swooping in to the rescue as a woman awaits a date who you know won't show? But Neal's deceptive dating schemes are challenged when Jane shows up, and keeps showing up. This charming romance—filled with both easy laughs and hard won intimacy—gets at the heart of human connection and the absurd situations we find ourselves in throughout its pursuit. S.H.
