Synopsis

Timeshare synopsis

Set present day, thirty years in the past and thirty years in the future. Fifty-three year old Eddie and fifty-three year old Paula arrive at their timeshare property to discuss the future of their precarious marriage after Eddie’s recent infidelities. Due to the unfortunate electrocution of the villa’s maintenance man Miguel on Christmas Day a fissure in the time space continuum has resulted in Eddie and Paula coming face to face with their younger selves who are at the property for the first time and with a marriage proposal imminent. After the initial shock and confusion, the older Paula and Eddie see this glitch in time space as a perfect opportunity to alter the course of their pasts – and futures – by convincing the younger Eddie and Paula that a future together is not one to venture into but instead to pursue the dreams and loves they themselves didn’t. The beautiful and feisty Marina, Miguel’s daughter, will no doubt prove to be a useful weapon in their persuasive arsenal. A comedy about love, marriage and the chance to do it all again… but better.
