99.9% of the time when being a couple doesn’t work out, the breakup is inevitable and lasting. Not in Emmie and Jason’s case. Emmie (Robin Tunney, TV’s The Mentalist, The Craft) seems to be doing pretty well for herself in New York City, contentedly running a dog-sitting business that loving husband Graham (Josh Hamilton, The Bourne Identity) set up for her. Into this peaceful scenario comes a reality series focused on “past relationships,” which rejects Emmie’s long-done love affair with Jason (Adam Scott, TV’s Parks and Recreation, Step Brothers) for their show. However, a formerly dormant curiosity with “what if” provokes her to take a trip back home. Once there, things are not what she expected, and the decisions Emmie is forced to make cause her to take a good look at the bigger picture. Nate Meyer (FFF 2007 Special Jury Award winner, Pretty in the Face) returns to the Festival with a different style of love story that surprises from the first frame to last.
Nate Meyer’s (See Girl Run) debut feature film Pretty in the Face played at festivals around the world including South by Southwest, Nantucket, and Lisbon. He studied filmmaking at the North Carolina School of the Arts and earned a Masters degree in Acting from Antioch University and The New Actors Workshop.
