‘Flight of Fancy’ romantic comedy by Robert Selzer – directed by Sue Sewell.
Two people are seated next to each other on an interstate flight – their minds or alter egos sit alongside, saying the sorts of things never uttered in polite conversation. The couple are initially attracted to each other until one of them discovers that the other took her sister to the cleaners in a divorce case and the other counters with an opinion that all romantic relationships are flawed and all lawyers do is clean up the mess. Their alter egos watch from the sidelines voicing their true thoughts and desires.
