Samantha is a schoolteacher lost in the netherworld of her late 20's - no longer young but not yet middle aged. She leaves her long-time boyfriend, who she's been living with in a "brother and sister" relationship for quite some time. Wanting change and searching for an elusive happiness, Samantha strikes out on her own. But she quickly finds the regeneration she seeks can be far from romantic. From the classrooms filled with smiling children, to the crowded bars of Los Angeles, Samantha goes looking for life; its fun, its love, its passion, and its meaning. This is a film about what she found. Written by

Samantha and Anthony are not a good couple, and their fate at the end of the film may not be the ending anyone is looking for. But in between, the film and the actors give a very gritty turn at how hollow and empty the singles sex scene can be, especially if it is fueled by too much alcohol and too many drugs. The attempts at introspection are handled very well, allowing the characters to develop their own special shallowness and frailty, and the action does a great job of showing how a few indiscretions can snowball into an empty and emotionally sickening life. Even if you have not slept with these kind of people, you have probably met them, and the film does a gritty job of slipping you into their uneasy, fragile and emotionally unsatisfying lives. This is a very good first flic, and hopefully more will follow.
