    Lisa LaStrada is a seemingly happy housewife in the quiet desert community of Lacuna. But looks can be deceiving, and not all is well in the LaStrada household; Lisa's husband is having an affair with her friend Virginia. Lisa's sister has problems of her own, running her grocery delivery business and propping up her marriage to Steve. One day, a bizarre lightning storm hits Lacuna, and the next morning, while the women wake up, all the men in the community appear to be in a comatose state. Soon it appears that every man in America has fallen into a deep sleep, and no one can wake them

For a film done on a $30k budget plus $20k in post-production, this film achieves it's goal of a successful sci-fi apocalyptic dark comedy. This was also one of the first ever digital feature films. Hughes inspired direction pays homage to more films then you shake a stick at. The highlight features Roger Corman fave, Mary Woronav, who provides that backbone for the film. NipTuck hottie Roma Maffia stands out as the neighborhood floosy who wants every man (and woman) that she can get her hands on. Can women survive a future with no men? How will the race possibly survive? Is an RV a necessary tool for the expansion of mankind? This film answers all those questions.

Men, can't live with 'em, can't live without 'em.
