Synopsis by Clare Perez-Izaguirre Lopez

Directed, starring and co-written by Natalie Morales, this drama shot exclusively through Zoom call screens follows student Adam (Mark Duplass) and Spanish teacher Cariño (Morales) as they work through the 100 Monday morning lessons gifted to Adam by his husband Will (Desean Terry). But after tragedy strikes and Adam finds himself a widower, he turns to Cariño for support, morphing their relationship into patient and therapist, overstepping the boundaries of the student teacher dynamic but also forming a beautiful friendship. Music by Gaby Moreno.
