Production Description

Seeking director for "Under Her Hat." Synopsis: "Cheryl Roth, an obsessive undergraduate hat maker, has awful luck when it comes to dating and is man-shy. She trips over polite, humorous Justin Chen, undergrad accessories major, in Central Park’s ice rink’s locker room and literally falls hard. The couple marry in spite of family protest reflecting ethnic boundaries, initiate high-end Sashay Hats, Inc. using Fashion School of Technology interns to staff their factory/showroom and run a five-year hot streak. Design theft, economic downturn, marriage fatigue and globalization push the partners to the edge, slashing away at each other with ethnic claws; advice from their reconciled mothers induce epiphanies that don’t work for their failed fall trade show and Justin’s design win over Cheryl’s hats in the ‘Hats Off to America!’ reality show and immediate departure for Hong Kong, predict inevitable breakup. In spite of first aid from Justin's grandfather, the mothers' boyfriends, and the Sashay interns, Cheryl, shaken to her core, faces priorities: What’s the most important thing in her life? Justin and their relationship, or Sashay, their company? Which does she love more, which counts for more, can she have both?"
