A film series about young 20 somethings trying to make it in New York City - created by Steven Allen

Thank you to everyone who helped make our Kickstarter a success!


Lifetime couple, since the age of 5, Alex Evans and Kimberly Peterson grew up together in Birmingham, Alabama. They attended the same schools, including Springs, their high school, until they went off to college. Alex went to NYU and met his best friend David Michaels. Kim went to UPenn and met her best friend Ashley Thompson. Alex and Kim stayed in a long distance relationship during college and both decided to live in New York City post graduation. Kim decides to break up with the love of her life, and that's where the real story begins with our 20 somethings in NYC.
