— «Two Rooms» is Blessing's heartfelt, timely drama about Michael Wells, a man kidnapped in Beirut, and his wife, Lainie, who is waiting at home in the U.S. The first room of the title is Michael's holding cell, and the second is his office at home — which Lainie has emptied completely in order to feel somehow connected to him. Meanwhile, she meets with Ellen Van Oss from the State Department and reporter Walker Harris, who have dramatically different ideas of how she should manage the crisis.
