Girls Night Out

On a Friday evening, Manhattan gallery owner Jack (50’s) meets Claire and Victoria (both early 20’s) on a Soho street and invites them up to his loft “to see his Max Ernst collages.” What ensues is an unexpected and intimate exchange of secrets, dreams, and regrets between strangers (32 min).
