Synopsis: CHAOS THEORY is a comedy about the outrageous misadventures of a meteorologist, Thor (Donovan Oakleaf), desperate to stop the endless cycle of disorder that is ruling his life. When Lisa (Alexandra Ford Thum) accidentally walks into his life, introducing a new element into his predetermined equation, she unknowingly sets off an unstoppable chain reaction of chaotic and zany events. The result is an unpredictable, whirlwind romantic adventure that will forever change Thor’s life. If a butterfly flapping its’ wings in Brazil can cause a Tornado in Texas, imagine what it could do to his love life.
