“Such nasty fun” –Variety

Dumped by his long-term girlfriend, 38-year-old Guido loses his moorings completely and is set adrift on a sea of heartbreak and homelessness, surfing from friends’ couch to couch. A struggling writer, Guido’s prospects for a fulfilling professional and personal future seem increasingly grim. Will he be able to find his footing again? This bittersweet comedy deftly dissects the vagaries of modern love with humor and grace.
