The Sweet Life


Preceded by the short film Sienna Burning (11 min.)

Kenny and Lolita, each struggling with their own demons, meet by chance in Chicago. They make a pact to travel to the Golden Gate Bridge to commit suicide. On the edge of the abyss, the trip becomes a series of comic misadventures as these characters try to wring meaning and humor out of what’s left of their existence. Their travels become even more complicated when they begin to fall in love along the way. Discussion with director Rob Spera and producers Bonnie Curtis and Julie Lynn
