A hip, trendy, attractive intellectual Los Angeles couple in doldrums reconfigures positively in light of some radical, unanticipated human interventions. The surprise arrival of a megalomaniacal but irresistibly charismatic old boyfriend with a penchant and acumen for rigorous philosophical debate from the most reactionary of perspectives eclipses any lingering sunshine on what seems to be the couple’s otherwise dim horizon. The trip down memory lane becomes an adventure into a quagmire of pent-up emotions and desires that crystallize unexpectedly through the erotic mediation of a bartender that nobody can keep their eyes and hands off.
