Story revolves around a woman whose husband and brother-in-law end up in a coma after a horrible accident. When the brother-in-law wakes up, he says he is her true husband.

Producers are Bob Yari, Vertigo’s Doug Davison and Roy Lee, Spitfire’s Guy East and Nigel Sinclair. Spitfire’s Alexander Brunner and Vertigo’s Sonny Mallhi exec produce. Yari Film Group production topper Brad Jenkel brought in the project.
