Claire Davis, relationship blogger, seems to have relationship problems of her own. Her ridged disposition framed by the relentless ticking of her biological clock is hampering her love life, in that she currently doesn’t have one at all.

Rob Brooks, her ex, a struggling writer himself, seemed so perfect until she discovered he didn’t want to have children, and in fact, hates them.
A year has passed and the only souvenir of their ill-fated relationship is a screenplay they wrote while together that is now getting traction in Hollywood! But it needs TLC!

When they reunite to punch up their screenplay, it becomes the very catalyst for comedy in 21 Sunsets. So, get ready for three acts, a splash of tonic and a twist ending over the course of Twenty-One Sunsets.

There’s an exciting local buzz that's growing around this new romantic comedy. It's set to be filmed in the local Carpinteria area starting April 16th. Casting has been done out of Hollywood. It's an amazing cast and the movie already has distribution in place. The film, 21 Sunsets, is a love story based on the popular blog, The Coffee Shop Diary by Kim Klein. The screenplay for the film was written by Michael Bayouth & Kim Klein at The Palm Lofts in Carpinteria, California back in 2014. 

Several Carpinteria businesses have already offered locations, such as;
Teddy's by the Sea, Giannfranco’s, and The Alcazar Theater.
