Description:
Defa interweaves multiple eccentric stories taking place over one day in New York: a young journalist and her bizarre boss are investigating a suspicious death case that comes to hinge upon the victim's watch, a rebellious teenager has trouble balancing her ideals with her ambitions, a young man has to make it up with his ex against all odds and a music lover centres his life around attaining a rare vintage LP.

Over the course of one fine autumn day in New York, various characters go about their business. Newspaper reporter Phil breaks in a nervous and awkward new investigative trainee Claire. Fortyish Benny is tipped to the availability of a valuable recording, but the transaction turns out to be a scam. Ray posted some nude pics of his girlfriend online, and now her musclebound brother is looking to teach him a lesson. Mopey teen Wendy is theoretically bi, but so far only lesbian in practice. The movie's grainy, natural-lighting style is an homage to the early indie era.

"I try not to be too melancholic a person, but I am melancholic. I go back and forth between sad and happy. Sometimes I want just to make a funny movie or just to make a sad movie-I can't seem to manage to do that. I just write both those things. I'm embracing that more and more. /…/ I go through a lot with my actors to let the character do what they want, to create the character on their own. At some point, I feel like they know more than I do, once we're actually rolling." (Dustin Guy Defa)
