Alek and Cole have reached a breaking point due to Alek’s inability to define their relationship, forcing Cole to take drastic action and move out. Alek left wallowing in grief goes out to a bar where he meets a stranger. Over drinks and an awkward rendezvous, this charming stranger forces Alek to comfort his fears about commitment.
[ALEK] [GENDER: MALE] [AGE: 25-32]
Alek is a well-meaning guy. Although he has been in a relationship a year, he’s afraid of commitment, afraid of what it might mean. Often this fear will make him reckless, but underneath it, he’s a good person.
[COLE] [GENDER: MALE] [AGE: 25-32]
Cole is sweet and patient up to a point. He has a vast compacity for emotion, and often that gets him into trouble.
[GUY] [GENDER: MALE] [AGE: 25-32]
The Guy is the attractive stranger in the bar. He’s the roll of the dice. He could be great. He could be horrible. He’s the guys that you buy a drink for and hope for the best.
[BARTENDER] [GENDER: ANY] [AGE: 25-32]
Bartender located at the bar for one day of shooting. A non-speaking role
