From award-winning writer/director Wendy Jo Carlton comes this fresh, romantic ride, brimming with mind games and erotic tension. Kate and Jenna want to spice up their relationship by opening it up to a third person and plan a date with the enchanting Mia. Jenna becomes enthralled with Mia’s sexual confidence and charm, and as they spend the evening dancing, drinking tequila, and sharing secrets, the women become entangled physically and emotionally. But what was intended as a night of fun soon exposes the cracks in Kate and Jenna’s relationship. Director Carlton is a two-time QFest alum with “Hannah Free” and “Jamie and Jessie Are Not Together.” The Chicago Reader writes: “Carlton’s characters speak in sentences that are self-conscious and overly aware, rendering them a little unlikable but instantly identifiable as representations of the awkward, cowardly parts of our own selves when faced with a crumbling relationship. At times giggly, at times cringey, this film initially seems like a rom-com but quickly turns into the anxious, tightly wound reflection on sexuality and self it clearly was meant to be.”
