Cast: Charlyne Yi, Michael Cera, Jake Johnson


Charlyne Yi does not believe in love. Or so she says. At the very least, she doesn't believe in fairy-tale love or the Hollywood mythology, and her own experiences have made her—at minimum—a modern-day skeptic. But this inquiry into love and its present-day manifestations suggests she hasn't entirely given up hope.

As she and her friend (and director), Nicholas Jasenovec, together search for answers and advice, you get the idea that this new generation's cynicism isn't the whole story. Shortly after filming begins, she meets a man after her own heart: Michael Cera. As their relationship develops on camera, her pursuit to discover the nature of love takes on a fresh new urgency. Charlyne risks losing the person she finds closest to her heart.
