Storyline

Twenty-one year old Tracy walks in on her boyfriend Mark having sex with a man and decides to leave him. After assessing her limited options, she returns to Mark with a deal-if he agrees to marry her, she'll forget the incident ever happened. Mark accepts her terms, but neither fully understands the sacrifices they have to make. As their relationship deteriorates, Tracy's world opens up when she befriends the quirky residents in her Los Feliz neighborhood: Sebastian, a troubled recluse who closed the door to society after being bitten by a poisonous spider; Luann, a former child star and true free spirit; Krista, Mark's hard-charging talent manager; Jonathan, a gay magazine reporter; and Ricky, a hot Mexican with a failing food truck. As Tracy discovers her sense of self and true passion for cooking, she is a catalyst that forces them all to grow and connect in unforeseen ways.

Unique and engaging dramedy
25 September 2017 | by See all my reviews

This film drew my attention because it included one of my favorite actresses (Melissa McBride). I wasn't sure what to expect from this indie film, beyond her known talent, but I was blown away and cannot wait to see it again.

How to describe it with no spoilers? It's unlike any other story I have ever seen and it goes to unexpected places. I have discussed it with others who have seen it and respectfully disagree with critiques that certain characters or situations seem "unrealistic", as I have known people like those characters in my life. So it's likely that one's mileage will vary depending on their own life experiences but I would definitely give it 10 stars.
