In his sophomore feature, Ryan Piers Williams stars alongside America Ferrara, Melanie Diaz and Jon Paul Phillips in the character-driven drama centered around four friends living in New York and their interactions with one another as they search for a sense of balance. Mark, Jen, Sylvia and Jake are each caught in an emotionally arrested state of being and their individual attempts to escape it explores the murky web of communication and the stark detours we take to avoid confronting our own vulnerabilities. With raw energy, Williams puts a microscope on the wanton desire we all have to connect with someone, the desperate lengths we'll go to keep that connection, and what happens to us when that connection no longer holds meaning. Sharp and honest performances from the ensemble round out this taut relationship drama.
