ABOUT THE FILM
Holly (Ashly Burch) and Ashley (David Fetzer), both in the midst of individual quarter-life crises, meet by chance when their peculiar activities intersect at the same bus stop. Ashley, in his late twenties, quit his job to travel in search of internal clarity—stopping along the way to visit his childhood home with an
ulterior motive to break in for the nostalgic rush. Holly, in her early twenties, is mourning the loss of an immature and short-lived relationship with her restaurant manager who ultimately fired her, leaving her jobless and directionless as well as heartbroken. Both struggling to move on from the past, Holly and Ashley share brief, strange, and juvenile misadventures as they compare and contrast, and commiserate as grown-up children stumbling through life’s final bout of growing pains.
