    • Synopsis
    • Shocked at having witnessed a hit-and-run, serial underachiever Percival returns home to his Brooklyn apartment and begins to re-assess the listless life he shares with his pot-dealing roommate, Sal.
      The night unfolds in real time as Percy unnerves Sal by questioning as to why they have so little to show for their college degrees and creative minds. He resolves to take action and win over Chloe, the unobtainable girl of his dreams. In order to impress her, he persuades a reluctant and disparaging Sal to let him handle the transaction when she calls to buy pot.
      Chloe arrives with her best friend Riku, a wild girl for whom Sal has had the hots for some time. They easily spot Percival’s clumsy and humorous attempts to impress. Chloe has no intention of staying, but when Sal disappears to his room with an eager Riku, Percival grabs his opportunity to turn on his geeky kind of charm.
      As the night progresses, the four friends spar, bond and bicker, gradually revealing vulnerabilities with touching humor as they experience a big night that none of them will forget.
