Making Something Up is a feel-good romantic comedy about children's book writer Jack Payne (Paul Kinney), the most anal-retentive man in the world. Jack used to be successful but now struggles with professional recognition and personal significance, and he is all but through with his over-demanding book editor/Fiance; Amanda Keyes (Elisabeth Nunsiato). When Jack unexpectedly falls for Jennifer (Rachel Songer), an unemployed single mom running from a relationship gone bad, things get complicated quickly. In a comically frantic attempt to help her get rid of her ex beau, Jack concocts his own version of a witness protection program, faking Jennifer's funeral with a little help from his friends. But things don't go as he planned resulting in a hilarious climax at Jennifer's made-up funeral.
