Directed by Sophie Brooks. With Zosia Mamet, Matthew Shear, Deirdre O'Connell, Sarah Ramos. A young woman is forced to reflect on her first relationship when she inadvertently moves into her ex-boyfriend's apartment building.
There was in intriguing scene in a restaurant in which the Diana, the main character portrayed by Zosia Mamet, wants some lemon, but is told that it’s only available in one of the other dishes.
