This Always Happens
VIMEO STAFF PICK | OFFICIAL PREMIERE: SHORT OF THE WEEK
It’s Jill and Anton’s first date. They met online. Like many New Yorkers, they are lonely. Things are going well. Really well--that is, until Jill asks Anton what his astrological sign is. Things get worse from there--and personal. Way too personal. Jill calls Anton on his bullshit. She cuts deep. Maybe deep enough that he’ll finally recognize his self-destructive pattern? This could be a big night for both of them.
