The Story




Synopsis


Fresh out of a stint in rehab and equipped with a stash of Capri Sun, Jess tracks down Andi and, in an attempt to make amends, crashes her solo camping trip. Andi confronts Jess about the damage she’s done to their relationship, but reluctantly allows her to stay for one brief, beautiful day. Hidden away in the forest, feelings resurface; slipping back into old habits is easy, but arriving at forgiveness—or something resembling it—is hard. 



In the current climate, there is an immediate need to tell stories highlighting the complexity, dignity, and humanity of underrepresented voices - created by these same people. Our production aims to acknowledge struggle while also making room for the immense joy we experience as well. People are beautifully imperfect and we are all deserving of love and respect - it's an important reminder for us all, particularly now.


While the strikes are ongoing, we believe this is the perfect time to support and showcase independent filmmaking. There are so many thought-provoking, creative stories being told by artists on a smaller budget and the timing couldn't be better to contribute to and uplift these voices, ensuring independent work is celebrated.



ANDI is a pragmatic, sometimes silly, empathic introvert. She often looks out for others, even when that means neglecting herself. Andi has always done what's "right" in order to achieve success and she's proud of that fact. She is grounded and has a very clear picture of what she wants in life - except when Jess is around. While they've been friends for ages, Andi is increasingly aware of a need to set boundaries.


JESS is bubbly, extroverted, and well-meaning but messy. She's the troublemaker looking to make life more exciting for the both of them. She has loved Andi since they were teens, constantly hoping to turn their platonic intimacy into something more. Jess knows her struggles with addiction have made things difficult, but she's determined to make it right - Andi is the one stable thing in her life.



I'm constantly fascinated by relationships—friendships, family-ships, intimate-ships. One of the biggest aspects of living is the people we choose to do it with. Why do we choose to hold on? Why do we choose to let go? Throughout the pandemic, where we all wrestled with isolation, I found myself examining the ways we connect to one another, and the ways our relationships may grow, fracture, and evolve over time.


This film explores how we show up and show love—romantically as well as platonically—for those we care about. It embraces falling in love with your friends and all the parts of yourself. This story is a love letter to childhood, queerness, and the self-growth I believe we’re all capable of. It celebrates finding beauty within the chaos of life.


Immense love to everyone who has so enthusiastically become involved with the life of this production - it means the world.


—Alexandra / Al
