"PARTNERS is an action comedy feature length screenplay centered around a married couple in the LAPD who are forced to work the same case in order to catch a killer. Once they are partnered, the stress of the case and the extended time together forces them to confront the growing problems in their marriage. Thematically, PARTNERS tackles the universal struggle of finding the right balance between professional life and family life. When the two become one, the couple lose all sense of privacy spending every second of the day with each other. They learn things about each other professionally that exacerbate their marital issues and add to growing resentments. In their journey, the couple will learn what it takes to be a good partner professionally, a good partner in private life and that being one can sometimes be at odds with the other. Of course, all of this happens with the added stakes that if the couple don't figure out their personal and professional problems, they won't catch the killer and people will continue to die. They must become better partners to each other in order to save the day." -- Abstract
