Everaftering

The road to good intentions is paved with blind dates. It's Valentine's Day, and Michelle has planned a blind date for (and against the will of) her roommate Helen. As date time approaches, the evening descends into a tangle of mixed allegiances, old wounds, potent truths, and good intentions gone terribly awry.
