I am a huge fan of O. Henry, and his Christmas story, The Gift of the Magi. I'd love to do this romantic love story, set in modern day.
A couple married for a few years, have stumbled onto hard times, in this financial crunch. Yet, they both want to give the other a special Christmas gift, and what they go through to find the perfect gift for the other, and how they go about purchasing it, in the hard financial times they have.
Perhaps they have lost their house to the housing crisis, perhaps one is ill, with medical bills to pay, perhaps one has lost their job. It could be any or all of the scenarios, but they are committed to not losing each other, not because of money.
I am looking for man, who is willing to play the part of the husband of the couple, while I play the wife.
