A modern millennial codependent couple in DTLA have their relationship thrown for a loop when he discovers a photo from an ex on her phone.
About The Film

Luke and Peggy are your average pair of millennials in almost-love, living together in DTLA, placing complicated Indian food orders and making elaborate sex tapes inspired by indie film horror classics. Over the course of a day the edges of their insular relationship are tested as a discussion of exes leads to challenges neither of them thought they’d be facing on this particular afternoon.

Returning to the Festival, director Tanuj Chopra (Chee and T) applies his ability to craft authentic connections to a modern sexual relationship, where erotic chemistry is as valued as humorous banter. Seeing a Taiwanese-American couple getting real—and getting busy—onscreen is a refreshing change, and Chopra’s co-writers and lead actors Grace Su and Anthony Ma prove they are game for vulnerable positions, both emotional and physical.
