“Safe Haven’s Hospital Bar” is a comedy film about a young man who wants to prove himself ready for fatherhood after his girlfriend goes into labor.

[Mike] [GENDER: MALE] [AGE:32-45]

A pro at this whole fatherhood thing, but is a total drunk. Mike is a wise man for his age, and sort of a coach for the young men who are expecting, but you have to take everything he says with a grain of salt, he is a drunk after all.

[Phyllis] [GENDER: FEMALE] [AGE: 20-25]

The smoking hot bartender who runs Safe Haven’s Hospital Bar. When she is not serving up drinks, or singing, she does lamaze coaching. This comes in handy for the young men who come through Safe Haven’s Hospital Bar.
