A messy millennial musician (breakout star Megan Stalter) heads home to salvage her rocky open relationship

Description

Breakout queer comedian Megan Stalter (HACKS) stars as Cora, a musician with no career who performs screwball songs that mask a deeper hurt. In a moment of aimlessness and desperation, she heads back to her hometown of Portland, Oregon. Her mission: to salvage her shaky open relationship with her girlfriend (TWENTIES’ Jojo T. Gibbs).

Navigating a series of misadventures, Cora collides with Tom (THE GOOD PLACE’s Manny Jacinto), who finds himself inexplicably drawn to her gruff demeanor. A chance for romance presents itself — if she could just get it together! Embarking on an absurd, volatile journey of self-discovery, Cora confronts the self-induced roadblocks that have halted her progress and attempts to clean up her messes with riotously rocky results.

This film will be followed by a Q&A.
