The "C" Word follows the misadventures of DOUG, a perfectly normal American adult male, through the ups and downs of a 9-year long "committed" relationship, finally ending in marriage.
The "C" Word is about the eternal struggle between man's fear of commitment and woman's fear of abandonment. That beautiful but deadly, horrifying, hypnotic, never-ending battle for supremacy which every couple must go through in order to remain a couple for one more day.
Like the spectacle of the black widow spider devouring her mate, The "C" Word is not always pretty. But, damn, it's funny. Look at him squirm!
