Synopsis by Jonathan Crow

Sean Garrity makes his feature-film debut with this wry comedy about the tangled romantic lives of the citizens of Winnipeg. Joseph (Jonas Chernick) is a chemist for the water department who cannot let go of his longtime girlfriend Laura (Sarah Constible). A teacher at an all girl's Catholic school, Laura, in turn, is hot for the formerly wild Bruce who has since become a computer consultant and the husband to a very attractive Japanese woman. Nonetheless, even if Bruce were inclined to a little romance on the side, it would be not with Laura but with a comely 19-year-old named Alex (Micheline Marchildon) who is cousin to Joseph. To complete this daisy chain of thwarted desire, Alex is, of course, madly in love with her cousin who she cons into letting her crash in his apartment. This film was screened at the 2001 Toronto Film Festival.
