Storyline

When the lights go out during Hurricane Sandy, Dan falls and butt-dials his ex-girlfriend. Her name also happens to be Sandy. He takes it as a sign to visit her. Mimicking the hurricane's capacity to cross boundaries, interviews with firefighters who lost their homes during Sandy are intercut with this romantic comedy. The resulting clash of genres creates unexpected juxtapositions that illuminate both the global and local dimensions of the storm. Written by Anonymous

Romantic Comedy/Documentary shot in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy
29 October 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a provocative story about a man who accidentally butt-dials his ex-girlfriend a few days after Hurricane Sandy and takes it as a sign that he should be back in touch with her (the ex-girlfriend's name is also Sandy). The film crosses genres in a disturbing way. On the one hand we are confronted by actual footage taken by firefighters as homes were lost to one of the most devastating fires in New York history. At the same time, we get to see the sweet story unfold as the main characters re-kindle and old romance. It's disturbing to see the trauma and ruin that resulted from the Hurricane mixed with the lightness of the love story, but in this way I found the film to be quite brilliant...It forced me to think about the lines between the day-to- day joys and struggles of my own relationships and how they intersect in my emotional space with larger and more complex current events, especially climate change.
