In this US Indie ‘dramedy’, a young woman is forced to reflect on her first relationship when she inadvertently moves into her ex-boyfriend's apartment building.

Diana (Zosia Mamet) moves back to New York City after a few years abroad and finds the perfect Brooklyn apartment for a fresh start. Yet on the first night in her new home, she discovers that her ex-boyfriend Ben (Matthew Shear) lives in the apartment below hers.

After an awkward reunion, Diana proclaims her intentions for a genuine friendship. But as old wounds are opened, both Diana and Ben are forced to confront the true nature of their feelings. Casting aside stereotypes in favor of everyday neuroses, she defies the contemporary film-school orthodoxy that nice people can't be compelling characters.
