"Holding Pattern" is an ensemble comedy that centers on the beautiful but absent-mined Leah Lund, who shares the bottom floor of a Minneapolis, MN duplex with her best friends Griffin Brady and Sabrina Page. When Griffin plans a surprise romantic dinner at home with intentions of proposing to Sabrina, Leah ruins it by showing up first and drinking the champagne, eating the chocolate off the strawberries, and letting loose two dozen breathtaking butterflies from a red heart shaped box! Then just before Griffin is in a plane crash with Leah, along with their arrogant author friend Chad Kirk and their sheltered upstairs neighbor Daisy Page, he confesses to Leah that he has always been in love with her - but after the crash he loses his memory! All of their lives will be comically changed forever.
