Holiday Breakup is a story about how love can sneak up on you when you least expect it and how, sometimes, by going through the motions, by realizing that love is a verb, you can arrive at the one thing we’re all searching for, the truth.

Faced with the hell of spending the big three holidays, Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s not only alone, but at the center of one pity party after another, Chloe (Manon Mathews) and her boyfriend decide not to tell anyone they've broken up. It’s a simple plan; even though what they really want to do is slap each other silly, all they have to do is pretend to be in love to make it through the holidays unscathed.

As they smile and fake their way through one holiday party after another, their “pretend” romance intensifies and, ironically, they find that everyone else’s “perfect” relationships aren't so perfect after all.

Writer/Director Temple Mathews is a graduate of the University of Washington and a producer at the American Film Institute.
