He returns home from a lengthy hospital stay to find that his landlord, assuming the worst, has rented his place out to a single mom (Jamie Anne Allman of AMC’s “The Killing”) with a young daughter. Gary Cole also stars.

The pic is skedded for an October release both theatrically and on VOD, with rollout across DVD, pay TV and digital planned.
