A disillusioned substitute teacher and a depressive cop strike up an online conversation that could change the course of their entire lives, in this dialogue-driven romantic comedy from director Michael Blaine. “Sylvia” and “Steiner” are two people who have grown disappointed with their lives. After entering into a stimulating online chat, the two strangers agree to meet up for coffee at a New York City café. From the first word spoken, it’s apparent to both that there is a strong connection. During the course of their conversation, both “Sylvia” and “Steiner” reveal intimate secrets about their pasts before hatching a plan that could make their dull lives interesting again.
