About the film

Comedy/Drama — 2020 — English

The last person college graduate Danielle expects to run into at a family shiva is her sugar daddy Max, whose apartment she was coming from. Avoiding him – and his beautiful wife and baby – is impossible, as is keeping her nagging parents, prying family friends and angry ex-girlfriend Maya away. This delightful feature-length version of an award-winning short film is a quirky yet sensitive exploration of the pressure young people face today.
