Louis (George Sample III) and Jack (Zurich Buckner) have been friends since forever, so how could anything as lame as adulthood change that? But Louis’s first adorable attempts at grown-folk business are increasingly at odds with Jack’s ceaseless quest for new fucks not to give. One hot summer day, Louis makes plans with his new friend Andrew (Brian Kowalski), and Jack refuses to get left behind, both metaphorically and literally. Twenty-four hours later, everything has changed.

In his first feature, writer/director/producer Michael J. Larnell catches a universal moment, then makes it completely and utterly his own. The three young actors crackle with energy—kinetic, potential, everything—their moves and words curved by the distinctive lope of urban St. Louis.

Growing up is something we do on our own, but that doesn't mean we can't do it next to someone we love. —J.K.
