An unconventional love story set in Minneapolis and Los Angeles at the close of the 20th century. Love Tapes tells the story of Melinda, an x-ray technician completely obsessed with Kevin, the lead guitarist of the 80's hair metal super-group Umlaut.
Declaring her love through a home video recording, Melinda pours her soul into the camera, sending off the tape to Kevin in hopes of capturing his heart. The result is a surprising journey in discovering love where you least expect it; with champagne, magic tricks, hula-hoops, and straight up rock and roll along the way!
