In Lieu of Flowers

In Lieu of Flowers presents an unconventional romance, New York style. Two young New Yorkers navigate the humbling, harrowing, and often humorous process of surviving heartbreak in a city that is both lively and lonely all at once. Rachel and Eric have each recently lost a romantic partner. They’re eager to move on, and are having a hard time doing so. But after a chance meeting between the two, everything starts to change. The two urban warriors awkwardly – and sometimes comically – navigate a new, ambiguous and slightly odd relationship. [Synopsis courtesy of Napa Valley Film Festival]
