Or what happens when you try and lasso the moon
A Play in Two Acts
Nick Hirsch, film critic and Columbia University professor is recovering from a serious illness in his Upper Westside apartment in New York City. His reclusive day is interrupted by a visit from Harlow Smith, his old girlfriend from Los Angeles, from 27-years-ago, who happens to be in town.
Her arrival makes Nick take a hard look at his past as he realizes that he has never let go of what never was and has probably never been present in his life, not even with his wife, Leni, and two grown children, Chloe and Max. It is only when they return to the apartment while Harlow is still there, that Nick begins to see that he has never ever truly been real with the people in his life. If he ever wants to experience love, no matter what time he has left, Nick must finally be honest with himself.
