This Triple F-rated rom com starring Girls alumni Zosia Mamet from first-time writer-director Sophie Brooks is the coming-of-age tale of a young writer looking to find her way back in New York City after a two-year stint in London. She navigates the rite of passage of every single New Yorker: the search for the perfect apartment. She seemingly finds such a jewel of a home, until realizing her downstairs neighbour is actually her ex whose heart she broke when she left town. Like a true New Yorker, she keeps the apartment. A film about love, chemistry and growing up.
