(THIS FILM WAS PART OF OUR 2023 FESTIVAL LINEUP AND IS NO LONGER AVAILABLE ON THE SLAMDANCE CHANNEL) What’s worse than graduating without a job, a boyfriend, or a sense of purpose? Not being able to graduate at all. Riley, an Asian-American girl, is a senior at an unidentified NYC college who is dealing with a yeast infection, a UTI, the fallout of a recent break-up, racial stigma from supposed friends, flailing romantic endeavors with uninterested men, and a future put on hold. But Riley has met Leo. He’s also Asian-American, living in Philly, handsome, and he listens to her. He must care about her. So Riley decides to shirk all responsibilities in New York to pursue him during a catastrophic night back in Philly. There, she encounters a familiar face that will change the course of events and make her reconcile with her failures and shortcomings in the process of becoming an actualized person.
