A SUNDAY KIND OF LOVE – written and directed by Geordie Sabbagh – SPOILERS
Unpublished novelist Adam (Dylan Taylor) tells his girlfriend Tracy (Meghan Heffern) that he plans to fix the plumbing while she is at work. She suggests that he finish his novel instead. Adam whines a bit about not being able to pay half the rent (something Tracy seems totally unconcerned about), and suggests that maybe it’s time to “let the dream die”. Then Tracy goes to work, and Adam heads to the local coffee shop to write. He is met there by Emma , who introduces herself as Death.
Emma (Melanie Scrofano) tells Adam that his time on earth is up, but that he should be happy about it. After his demise (she explains), Tracy will get his novel published and it will become the greatest novel of all time. When Adam remains reluctant to die after learning this, Emma takes an instant liking to him.
