Screenplay Synopsis

Harry, a suicidal Hare Krishna, is about to throw himself off a high bridge when he's rudely interrupted by the equally suicidal and heartbroken Harriet. But as they egg each other on to go first, they discover they have more in common than a love of orange, and a rebound romance is on the cards, until bumbling Harry blows it. Big time.
