Synopsis

Jeffrey, a Wall Street couch potato, receives a call from an old high school friend; Rona, a chatty trust fund baby, who claims to have dated him when they were teenagers. He can’t seem to remember her but pretends to anyway. Now, she seems to call him at all hours to reminisce about the good ole days that Jeffrey is barely convinced even occurred. Only after Rona decides to pay Jeffrey a visit for an unlimited stay does he have to admit that he has no idea who she is and refuses her self-invited request. Rona, only temporarily defeated, calls another supposedly, long lost friend from a different yearbook under a different name. This is her modus operandi, to live from person to person in invented relationships.
