Synopsis by Jason Buchanan

A commitment-phobic Los Angeles photographer gets more than he bargained for when he invites an unpredictable jazz singer to his father's retirement party in Detroit in this comedy of manners from first-time filmmaker Thom Steinhoff. Drew is a West-coast shutterbug who just doesn't see the point of being in a committed relationship, but when his father requests Drew's presence at his upcoming retirement party with the one stipulation that his freewheeling son bring a date to the big event, Drew puts in a call to his old Detroit flame, CeCe. When CeCe rejects Drew's invitation on the grounds that she is already attending the party with hotshot Detroit basketball star Marcus, the jealous Drew attempts to one-up his former sweetheart by inviting a beautiful Los Angeles jazz singer named Tatiana as his date. His plan to drive CeCe into a jealous rage goes awry, however, when Drew discovers that Tatiana is something of a loose cannon.
