I and You 2021

Housebound and ill, Caroline hasn't been to school in months. Confined to her room, she has only Instagram, Facebook, and Zoom for company. Then a classmate Anthony, bursts onto her screen – uninvited and armed with a delivery of waffle fries, a copy of Walt Whitman's poetry, and a school project due the next day...

Caroline and Anthony are opposites. Caroline's sardonic quips cover the burden of her illness and her fear of hope. Anthony is replete with life, upbeat, a dynamo of energy and happiness. Together, they discover issues they both face while unlocking a deeper mystery.

Underscoring their growing intimacy are portions of Whitman's poetic lyricism, which not only fuels the characters but is regenerative for us as well.

This sweet, quick-witted dramedy will leave you valuing your life and those who pass through it.

The show run-time is about 90 minutes.

There is some adult language in the show.
