The Glass Boxes In Which We Live:
The laugh out loud and emotional contemporary romance of 2020
“The Glass Boxes in which we live” is a modern women fiction.
Is love powerful enough to pull us into a different world than the one of our expectations and upbringing?
Alienor (do not call her Eleonor) is a 43 years old, sassy, well established, self-made, control freak career mom, sporting a very privileged lifestyle in one of the best neighborhood of Miami. Best daughter, best wife, best mother, best employee…she has strived to achieve those high standards, and has purposely made painful professional and personal compromises. Passing 40 and realizing she has failed her happily ever after, she puts herself back in the driver seat of her life, learns to accept her body, makes peace with her single mom status, and starts to live the life she was meant to be living.
Wesley is a still single 39 years old, athletic, nonchalant and handsome melanated man, working a night job to pay the bills, still pursuing his dream to break through as an actor with a financially unstable and unsustainable way of life in NYC. Their lives and upbringing are poles apart, yet their paths crossed as if all the cosmic forces have conspired to make it happen.
She was not expecting him. She was not expecting her here.
John Lennon once said that there is nowhere we can be, that is not where we are meant to be. Is a real relationship possible?
