30 YEARS TO LIFE is an ensemble comedy that follows the lives of six friends in New York City during the year in which they each reach their 30th birthday.

We meet an investment banker from Wall Street whose stock portfolio is longer than her list of potential companions; a stand-up comedian pegged to be the next Eddie Murphy who will settle for being the next Garrett Morris; a real estate agent whose been struggling with her weight for the past 29 years; a marketing executive who perceives any career advancement as a sign of getting old and a young man, whose thanks for being in a four year relationship is a girlfriend who insists on an even greater commitment.

Their stories represent how turning 30 makes you question whether or not your hopes and dreams will ever come true as the realities of age, mortality, and loss of metabolism set in.
