A twentysomething searches for the meaning of growing up and waits for an answer of cosmic proportions. 

 

Synopsis

A former history major, Sam has dropped out of college for reasons she can’t explain. On her 22nd birthday, she has one big wish: to feel a part of history by seeing the Patek Comet, which comes only once every 150 years.  But her day spirals out of control in a series of confrontations with her boss, family, friends and boyfriend – who bombard her with questions about her future that she's not prepared to answer.

TWENTYSOMETHING SELECTED AS FILM SHORTAGE WEEKLY FEATURED SHORT 

"Without any grandiose moment, the film flows through it’s half hour pitch in a smooth fashion.
