GINGER ALE AFTERNOON

GINGER ALE AFTERNOON is a slice-of-low-life romantic comedy that deals with a husband's coming to terms with hoself, his very pregnant wife, and his young mistress on the afternoon before the birth of his first child. The film lands us smack dab in the middle of a ramshackle California trailer park where the married couple spends their time fighting with each other, and as words fly, tempers soar and egos bruise, we become an intimate part of a universal story. GINGER ALE AFTERNOON starred the very pregnant Dana Andersen, who on the last day of shooting, went into labor on the set and delivered a 10-pound baby boy.
