Film Information


Julie, a mid twenties business analyst, finds herself wondering whether she’s made the right choices in life after her sister, Emma, interrupts her presentation prep to tell her that she is headed to Peru to work on an alpaca farm. Insult is added to injury when Julie’s presentation at work the next day fails to garner the accolades she was expecting. Her co-worker Rose, however, has the perfect plan to reignite Julie’s passion by helping her fulfill her dream of opening her own bakery. Unfortunately, Rose has ulterior motives and Julie and Emma must work together to salvage their relationship when things go sideways.
