synopsis
Nelson has no phone, no job, no future - and no Hailey. Broken and desperate, he shows up at his friend Jamie's door looking for help to get her back. Knowing that Nelson's chances are zero, and working towards an important promotion at work, Jamie must fend off his friend's neediness and delusions, to prepare his presentation. But when Nelson stumbles onto more devastating news, Jamie decides to try lifting his spirits. With his spirits not quite lifted, and Jamie not awake to intervene, Nelson pulls his most ridiculous and embarrassing stunt yet. And it may destroy both his and Jamie's future - unless he can figure out to take the tougher but better road.

director
Ela Thier wrote, produced and directed over a dozen short films winning numerous Best Short awards and recognitions world-wide. She was one of the ten nominees for the White House Project Emerging Artist Award (2010), a NYFA fellowship receipient in screenwriting/playwrighting (2008), and her scripts were selected four consecutive times by the IFP's Independent Film Week (2005-2009). In 2006, she organized a screenwriting workshop and eight writers attended. Word spread, and by now over two-thousand writers and filmmakers had attended her screenwriting, producing, and film directing workshops. She was born "Ela Shavit", as a third child to a single mom, and grew up in a small, working-class town named Yavne. She was raised by her mother, Tzvia, and adoptive step-father, Uri Thier, and eventually became the middle of five children. She was a domestic worker from the age of 9 to 30, and she attributes her creativity to the years she spent playing out on the street. Thier has been living in New York City for the past 25 years. In 2004 she married Evan Gluck, of New York Guitar Repair.
