Synopsis
Follows a young New York couple who, after four years together, have grown stifled. Desperate to escape their ennui, but fearful of life apart, they decide to intricately strategize their own break up. Daryl and Zoe create a maze of rules and boundaries, hoping they can avoid the pain of separation by slowly weaning themselves off of each other. Setting days on which they can speak and days on which they can't, the two twenty-something's are forced to confront their already embedded fears of self government.Their experiment becomes an exploration of independence within the confines of a relationship--monogamous or poly-amorous.
