In a not so distant future, relationship compatibility is determined by an advanced algorithm enforced by the federal government. Participation is mandatory and users must be paired with (or reassigned) to their ideal partner within one year or be transitioned to a permanent single lifestyle facility.
After a series of incompatible matches, and time closing in, Blake (John Bubniak) is accidentally launched through a series of turbulent splash portals when his matching device malfunctions in his bathtub, sending him through a whirlwind of glitches in this ill-fated waterlogged love story.

The Making Of
The story behind the film
They say write what you know, and I’m always getting electrocuted in my bathtub, so it just made sense! No, but in all honesty I wanted to explore dating app culture and what would happen if the government forced it’s way into romantic relationships. We originally shot in fall of 2017, but had to put production on hiatus as our lead actor (John Bubniak) broke both of his arms in a snow boarding accident on our day off! The production was halted while he healed. We completed shooting summer of 2018, then had a long festival run for all of 2019! Excited to get this out into the world!
