synopsis

Maya Trudeau, a single woman in her thirties, is in the midst of an emotional crisis. She is educated, financially stable and completely disillusioned with life. An introvert, she lives vicariously through her best friend and wasting time online. That is, until she takes a lover, Kaseem, a 22-year-old pizza deliveryman big on ideas, but short on execution. His game is clumsy but endearing. Maya is flattered that such a young man is into her. He�s edgy and a little bit dangerous, but to Maya's surprise, she likes it - a lot.
