I loved this film. Elizabeth Pena is wonderful and so is Andrew McCarthey.
The story is one of romance and mystery. Pena's boyfriend (McCarthey) is dead and neither she nor the audience knows why. We follow a recounting of their relationship told in flashbacks. Pena tries to figure out what happened a while trying to keep a grip on herself. Almost a comedy of errors. Things are not always what they seem, especially in love.
This is a well-written indie that has been sadly overlooked. The closing credits are underscored by a wonderful rumba-flavored song by "Little Queenie" that makes you shake it up while raising goose-flesh.
