What if you met the person you’ve been waiting for your whole life, just as a nuclear apocalypse was heading your way? Worlds collide in a tiki bar at the edge of Kauai when an aimless Silicon Valley dropout meets the bar’s brassy owner, who has a plan for all worst-case scenarios, except one… finding love.
Starring C. Thomas Howell, Worst-Case Scenario was inspired by the real-life event which took place on the morning of January 13th , 2018 when an incoming missile alert was issued for the island of Kauai which advised residents to “seek shelter… this is not a drill.”
Set in the wee hours of the morning, “Ethan” (Howell) sits in a tiki bar with only his backpack and a secret. He has wandered the island of Kauai looking for a way out of his dilemma… that is until “Staci” (Jacy King), the bar’s intrepid owner, walks in. Sparks fly as they dance around their attraction for each other… after all, it’s Christmas time on an island paradise… What could possibly go wrong? An incoming missile alert propels them both into a bunker to face their darkest fears. Staci reveals a secret of her own, threatening to explode their budding romance before it even takes off. What they uncover about themselves that will determine if they have it in them to really live, should they open the hatch to second chances.
