synopsis
A comedic drama following Ant and Dana, a struggling couple in Queens. The two go on a journey in search of a pregnancy test to see if their little family is getting an extra member.

filmmaker's note
KIDS DON'T RIDE BIKES ANYMORE started with that simple phrase encompassing the general feelings of an entire generation: Times have changed. At the time of me writing the screenplay, I was 23, and a lot of my friends were having kids or getting married. I was still trying to figure out if I had class and how dating worked. I believed that I couldn't be the only person my age going through the mental, emotional, and spiritual changes involved in going into adulthood. Most of us, if not all, entered adulthood with no training whatsoever. We continue to just make it up as we go and hope things work out. From talking with friends and my based on my own personal fears, the quickest way to get thrusted into the "real world" we were warned about was to be a parent to a child. Or be the expecting parent.
