Storyline

Jeff is a rowdy go-go boy. David is a studious undergrad....unlikely pair? Maybe. Cody was just released from jail and is searching for his mercenary girlfriend Aariel, who's just met her long lost sister Lana, who's pining over school basketball star Nick. Meanwhile Sarah is trying to decide if she and classmate Erika should be more than friends, while Rodney and Nicole battle their racist families with an interracial relationship. Sound confusing? It's not really that hard to follow once you get into the story of this alternately comic and dark drama set in NYC. Written by Anonymous

Trivia

Was done handheld totally guerrilla style because they did not have the budget for anything more. It is recently this realistic execution that got the film so much attention. See more »

Well done for what it is
10 January 2006 | by (H-Dub) – See all my reviews

What makes this movie work is the extremely talented actors involved. The film itself had absolutely no budget and was Tess Nanavati's first completed film project, and it shows in a few places. The script could use work and the story is a little choppy. However, the acting is top notch, the best of the best unknown talent. Even Tess, focused on directing, did a very good job pulling off an angry drug-dealer/hitwoman. What made everyone's roles so believable was that everybody was just your normal street kid or college kid. No one had an extravagant role, and therefore it all came together rather well. Carlos DaSilva (who can more recently be seen as a security guard in School of Rock) did an amazing job as Cody, the also street-wise boyfriend who's just come back from being in jail for 2 years. The different stories link together nicely, and you definitely feel some kind of emotion for everyone in the story during the last few scenes. Aimee Muschamp is also a great addition to the cast. What this film lacks is a cohesive, realistic story and top-notch dialogue. However, as a first project, this film was a great stepping stone, and I enjoy watching it.
