Storyline

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 Lot 47 Films

This is a Looking for Mr. Goodbar for the new millennium. Director makes a wise choice shooting it on digital video. It has the look of a documentary, allowing the viewer closer inspection of Samantha's life. Some of the dialogue is humorous and out of place but it lends to the realness of the film. Some women could be offended by Sam's behavior - she doesn't always make good choices - but this also gives her validity. She's in charge of her life, right or wrong, even as she clutches the nightlife on a trip of sex and drugs. It may not be easy for some viewers to watch. This film is real, challenging and never looks for the easy answers. Lead actress, Stephanie Bennett, is very engaging. She's also a co-screenwriter.
