This series has our heroes traverse the five stages of grief through the pandemic's lens and how it affects Alan and Chet's relationship. They will go through denial, anger, bargaining, depression, and finally acceptance as they realize that perhaps they are not the best fit for each other.

The COVID-19 pandemic has caused upheaval and renewal in everyone's lives in unexpected ways. Whether that comes in the form of health, social, societal, or otherwise, the pandemic has shown people who they are for better or worse. No one has gotten out of this period without being affected in significant ways, and Safer at Home? Explores one couple and the profound journey the crisis has caused for them.
