(mbc.net) A woman comes back one evening with her daughter to find that her boyfriend had vanished, leaving them for an out of town job, without any prior warning. Not his first time. To make matter worse, she finds out, that he had sublet his place in the apt, to an off Broadway actor; without telling him about the other females—her and her daughter— that live there. Despite some initial reserve, on her side having sworn to keep as far from actors as possible, an arrangement is made, and they all decide to share. Small talks at first turn into more talks… and a deep friendship and maybe more is taking shape.

A classic romantic comedy, filled with amazing performances, heartfelt details and observations, to elevate this to a level above average romantic comedy territory. Meet Eliot!
