The Liberty Bell Sweepstakes

Genre: Romantic Comedy

Logline: A dazzling young woman who practices her own special brand of magic leads three love-struck guys on an impossible quest to win a big pile of cash on the Fourth of July. 


Kathy arrives in Los Angeles flat broke and with no place to live. She sees a “Room for Rent” sign, moves in with Al and Fred, and immediately makes it clear that she doesn’t get involved with her roommates. They hit on her anyway. Then their friend Kevin shows up, and he hits on her too.

Getting into a relationship is the last thing on Kathy’s mind. She doesn’t need a boyfriend — she just needs money. She hears about The Liberty Bell Sweepstakes, a game show on the radio. It’s a chance to score a big pile of cash, and all she has to do is figure out a way to “invent the future.” The three guys, all striving to win her love, eagerly buy into her ludicrous plan.

Then Kathy suddenly falls in love. On the Fourth of July, they lay it all on the line. It’s a frenzy of bungled opportunities, divine intervention, and stolen kisses — and nothing turns out as expected.
