Ann, an aspiring filmmaker in New York, is desperate for a perfect relationship and thinks she knows what love should be. Surrounded by friends and happy couples, she tries and fails to stop falling in love with a set-up from her aunt. Consumed by the relationship, refusing to accept her eventual place in the “friend zone”, her work and other relationships begin to suffer. Her disappointments and emotions are channelled through her film work, tackling her worst fears and criticisms about herself. Mixing interviews to camera and stylised, humorous fantasy sequences throughout the narrative, writer, director, producer and star Ann Lupo brings to life the inner thoughts and contradictions inherent in navigating relationships - with friends and colleagues as well as romantic partners. With humour and imagination, Ann finds a way to interrogate and understand her own feelings, with hope for the future. Louise Acheson
