THE YOUNG MAN, 20's. A normally lighthearted young man who is trying win back his girlfriend Vanessa.
VANESSA, 20s. A smart woman who knows what she wants. On the rebound after breaking off a boring relationship.
VANESSA'S NEW LOVER, 20s. Non-dialogue. A decent-looking guy.
When a YOUNG MAN is dumped by the love of his life VANESSA, he bring his trusty iPhone SIRI along on a mission to win her back. Little does he know, Siri has other plans in mind ...
Siri promises to lead the Young Man to Vanessa, but keeps stalling and sidetracking, and we begin to realize that the Young Man might not be as in love with Vanessa as he thinks. Meanwhile, Vanessa is already canoodling with her NEW LOVER on a park bench. Dread builds as the Young Man gets closer to discovering that Vanessa has already moved on. Siri leads the Young Man to the Highline, and says "You have arrived at your destination." When he looks up, though, Vanessa is nowhere to be seen. A YOUNG WOMAN, a stranger, walks over with her iPhone, who is also saying "You have arrived at your destination." The two look at each other, surprised, and smile.
Dates of Production: Oct 29 - 30
