Long Story, Short

A young woman and her two best friends navigate messy relationships, bad dates, drunken mishaps and other assorted humiliations on the road to adulthood in this honest and provocative digital series.

Meet Kristen Harvey. She’s back home after blowing the biggest opportunity of her life, and she’s still in love with the boy she left behind. Welcome to the summer she loses her mind.

Kristen (Katie Boland) is a beautiful and self-deprecating 21-year-old who has just moved back to Toronto after failing to cut it at art school in New York City. Before moving away, Kristen broke up with her first love, Andrew (Adam Butcher), certain she wouldn’t miss the hometown guy in The Big Apple. She was wrong. So she comes home, hoping to win him back. Much to her surprise, Andrew has a new girlfriend and won’t give Kristen the time of day.

Now, back in her childhood bedroom, Kristen is heartbroken and self destructive, with too much time on her hands. Thankfully, she isn’t alone on this journey. Her two best friends – the unconventional Carson (Tommie-Amber Pirie) and more reserved English major Lucy (Lauren Collins), who is trying to manage a ‘friends with benefits’ relationship with their best guy friend, Dave (Michael Seater) – have also found themselves back at home and are equally aimless. Together, the three women are ready to break some rules and move beyond their boundaries.
