Austin and Emily

Austin McAdoo is a 347-pound man with a dry sense of humor and an affinity for canned ham. Emily Dooley is a tempestuous bombshell with an unpredictable temper and a simple worldview. Their appearances and personalities couldn’t be more different. But from the instant they meet in a Tampa strip club, they are madly in love. The star-crossed lovers set out to Los Angeles with a car full of cats on a quest to find eternal bliss along the Hollywood Walk-of-Fame. Traveling the long route to a modern Oz, the characters search for courage, heart, and brains in this comical examination of romance. Austin and Emily shows that much of life is truly absurd, but nothing so much as true love. Either you believe in it or you don’t. There is no in between.
