The Week contest: Date for days

This week's question: A woman in the Chinese city of Zhengzhou went to a man's house for a blind date — and found herself stuck there for days because of a sudden COVID lockdown. The man wasn't a great conversationalist, she reported, and his cooking was "mediocre." If Hollywood were to make a rom-com about love blossoming during lockdown, what should the film be titled?
