Closing Escrow
 
"Closing Escrow" is the story of three quirky families seeking to buy their next home. Each has a reason for moving and a reason they don't get along with their real estate agent. African American attorneys, Bobby and Tamika, have hired Hillary Macella as their real estate agent. Hillary is a racially hyper-sensitive white woman dealing with more than her share of white guilt. That is, until she gets mugged. Tom and Dawn met in an unconventional way as they are the product of the world's first successful stalking venture. Dawn doesn't like to call it stalking, but that's how the police reports referred to it. Over that time, she convinced Tom to leave his wife in favor of her. They themselves are actually now happily married and looking for a new home together. They have an unethical real estate agent who damages homes to make them more affordable for his clients. This makes house hunting a little awkward much less dangerous. Mary and Allen are working with the noble Peter Jacobsen as their real estate agent. Peter happens to have a nicer house than the one they are looking for. This sparks a one sided competition within Allen as he connivingly tries to "one-up" his agent in the middle of the house hunt. All three families converge on the same property which inevitably goes into multiple offers. Who gets the house? Rated PG for thematic elements, language, crude humor and incidental smoking.
