For a Good Time

For a Good Time is the story of Jane who, grieving over the loss of her mother, has a meltdown in a flower shop. Out of options and out of her mind, she decides to call a number written on the wall. The person who answers is the last one you’d expect, and just the one she needs. Beginning with documentary footage and ending with fiction, For a Good Time is a comedy born of a tragedy, and fable about a bathroom stall meeting that lasts forever.
