Rodney's 2nd feature follows two young couples in New York - one black and gay, one white and heterosexual - who find their lives intertwined as they create new relationship norms, explore sexual identity, and redefine monogamy.

The film's cast includes: LeRoy McClain (The History Boys), Sorel Carradine (The Good Doctor), Charlie Barnett (Gayby, Chicago Fire), Cameron Scoggins (Lovers), Maria Dizzia (Martha Marcy May Marlene, Louie), Sue Jean Kim (Bachelorette), Jamie Harrold (Erin Brockovich, The New Tenants - 2010 Academy Award Winner - Best Live Action short), and Michael Nathanson (Side Effects, Time Freak - 2012 Academy Award Nomination - Best Live Action short).

After its Frameline premiere, the film next screens at the Philadelphia QFest, as a Centerpiece Selection, this month; and then, at Outfest - The Los Angeles LGBT Film Festival - also this month.
