Synopsis by Mark Deming
In this comic suspense story, a man finds out the hard way that the bathroom can be the most dangerous part of the home. When Arne Steinberg (David Alex Rosen), a bachelor who lives in a beach house near the California coastline, buys a new home in a quiet Los Angeles suburb near Los Angeles, he soon learns why the place is so cheap: the previous tenant, Annie Ashland (Sammi Davis), died in the house, and the authorities are still trying to determine if it was murder or suicide. Just as Arne is getting used to this news, he's visited by Tilly Rensley (Alexa Jago), a free-thinking documentary filmmaker who was Annie's best friend -- and doesn't yet know about her death. When she hears the news, Tilly is convinced that Annie could not have killed herself, and she fast-talks Arne into helping her track down the killer, although Arne's interest is largely dictated by Tilly's fondness for taking her clothes off. Soft Toilet Seats was the debut feature from writer/director Tina Valinsky, who previously worked as a TV journalist and documentary filmmaker.
