3RD STREET BLACKOUT is an ultra-modern romantic comedy set against the black-drop of the post-Sandy power outage that plunged most of lower Manhattan into darkness. Negin Farsad and Jeremy Redleaf play Mina and Rudy, an incredibly tech-savvy couple (she is a neuroscientist and TED-talker, and he is an app developer) who have recently begun living together in a Third Street tenement walk-up. Since they do absolutely everything on computers and a host of other digital devices, their biggest issue is whose Netflix queue will take precedence over the other's. Then, when Hurricane Sandy hits, they are shocked to discover that they can no longer use their prior--and primary--modes of communication. When they have a spat, and Rudy decamps to Brooklyn, they are each forced to resort to new (meaning old) ways of connecting to people and, with the help of friends, neighbors, and assorted East Village denizens, they try to make their way back to one another.
