Three late-twentysomethings come together to create a wholehearted ménage à trois in this playfully erotic tale that sparks with the restless energy of the French New Wave. In a richly filmed black-and-white Los Angeles, each member of the threesome is in transition: fun-loving Marcello from under the thumb of his Italian soap star father, soulful French-Iranian actor Nassim toward a more fulfilling career, and artist Christine through the grief following the death of her grandfather. But the frolicsome trio finds joy and release together—exploring their sexuality, joining political protests, making art, and falling deeper into their unconventional amour—until a trip to Italy threatens their relationship’s delicate balance. Renowned cinematographer Svetlana Cvetko captures the trajectory of this love affair with a deliciously modern Jules et Jim flair, combining tenderness, artistry, and three fresh and appealing leads. This newborn auteur is showing us what she’s got—and what she’s got is breathtaking.

EXPECTED GUESTS: Director Svetlana Cvetko, Actors Cristina Rambaldi, Neyssan Falahi, and Mattia Minasi, Producers David Scott Smith and Nick Sarkisov, Executive Producer Phillip Noyce
