Prelude to a Kiss

When Peter, a man from a broken family, meets Rita, an insomniac bartender with no faith in the future, only one thing can happen: they fall in love and get married. Then, on the evening of their nuptials, an elderly stranger appears at the reception, bearing a kiss for the new bride. In this romantic fantasy, it is a kiss that tests the boundaries of the couple’s love.

The lobby of a Manhattan apartment building is the backdrop for a local murder investigation in this engaging dramatic comedy about a young security guard facing multiple moral dilemmas while trying to get his life back on track. At the same time, both his boss and his love interest wrestle with ethical issues of their own. Matters of love and loyalty collide with racial bias and sexism in the workplace, polarizing issues with laugh-out-loud moments to remind us how ridiculous and human we are.
