There are nights that never happen. And there are dreams that never come true. A night in Los Angeles, the city of dreams: Claire and Jazmine are two single women in their thirties looking for their own place in the world.
The film follows the two protagonists through the course of one evening, and the result is a no-frills, universal snapshot of life in your thirties.
The young women alternate daily routine with nightly escape, looking for some new way to restore vitality to a life they perceive as barren and devoid of clear goals.
A generational parable about friendship, the future and aimlessness, in a city that shines, comes to life and lives all on its own, with an imperturbable and harsh beauty when viewed in the light of the events. Here, the sunset doesn’t have to mark an end, nor dawn a new beginning.
