The Plot, Courtesy of HBO Max:

In Locked Down, just as they decide to separate, Linda (Hathaway) and Paxton ( Ejiofor) find life has other plans when they are stuck at home in a mandatory lockdown. Co-habitation is proving to be a challenge, but fueled by poetry and copious amounts of wine, it will bring them closer together in the most surprising way.
