Logline: Almost a year after rejecting Amory “Amo” Percy’s deeply personal screenplay, assistant film executive Camilla Reilly finds herself without a job, a boyfriend, or a place to live. By chance, she meets up again with Amo at a downtown party and spends a life-changing 24 hours in his company. From underworld haunts to the upscale reaches of uptown Manhattan, theirs is an odyssey through a restless city in retrograde — an ageless, timeless, polymorphous landfill of drugs, poseurs, and perceptions, where everyone’s got their own hustle. Slowly but surely falling in love, Amo’s past and Camilla’s destiny intersect in a fateful romance cut short by sudden, lyrically foretold tragedy.
