Sylvie has given up her fast-paced LA musician lifestyle for something more domestic and financially stable. Upon unexpectedly encountering her former bandmate David, who is now working as a busker and living on the street, the formerly close friends spend three days reminiscing about their past and present realities, while confronting the life choices that led them to where they are. Their story is backed by a sweeping melodic soundtrack that mirrors the nuanced twists and turns of their complex relationship in this observant, intimate, and humanistic drama.
