Improviser Adal Rifai joins the Almost Plausible crew in this hilarious story about a pair of food truck owners who face off during a cooking battle with a hefty cash prize. Despite their initial headbutting, the chefs soon discover they have more in common than just their cuisine, leading to a romantic entanglement.
In the early twentieth century, a group of lumberjacks head into a remote part of the woods to work. The plan is to spend two weeks felling trees and finishing a log flume, but a series of attacks from a forest monster forces them to change their plans. Their camp’s remote location makes escaping from the woods nearly impossible, but fighting the monster has deadly consequences. The men must use their brains and their brawn if they’re going to make it out alive.
Bag of Chips
Author and screenwriter Geoffrey D. Calhoun joins the crew to write a story about a bag of chips. Specifically, a bag of potato chips, although it seems no one told Shep that, because his pitch is about a hacker who steals a bag of computer chips. Never wanting to back down from a challenge, the group finds a way to make it work, and together they create a story about a heist to steal potato-based computer chips.
A woman in her twenties is surprised when she suddenly lays a large egg. As if that wasn’t strange enough, the egg hatches to reveal a tiny human… With wings. The woman raises her daughter under a watchful eye, careful to make sure the secret of her child’s wings is never revealed. But what happens when her rebellious teenage daughter yearns to fly?
A group of kids on summer break hit the jackpot when they discover a huge pile of shipping pallets, which they use to build forts in the woods. A water balloon war breaks out, and soon bases are being captured and absorbed, until just two large forts remain. What follows for the children is a tense weekend full of escalating weapons, imaginations, and the greatest water balloon battle of their lives.
The solo female traveler from America visiting Ireland and falling in love with a handsome Irishman is a pretty standard rom-com trope at this point, so we decided to shake things up a bit. In our story, an Irishman living abroad in the United States comes home and falls in love with an American woman living in Ireland. It’s a story about family, tacos, and the Shamrock Inn.
A conservative survivalist with the less-than-masculine name of Snowflake Johnson visits his hippie parents at their remote commune to introduce them to his fiancée. While there, Snow learns the commune’s residents earn their living farming drugs for a cartel. He stirs up trouble, which has predictably dire consequences.
Ephram is an aspiring writer living in a big city. When his great aunt passes away and he inherits her cottage in a tiny New England town, he sees an opportunity to get the peace and quiet he needs to finally write his novel. Unbeknownst to him, a spell-gone-wrong in the late 18th century has cursed the town with a zombie problem, and flowers are the only thing that can hold back the undead.
