One Too Many Mornings was a Sundance 2010 selection thanks to its realistic dialog, acting and melancholy black and white footage.

Fischer and Peter, now in the their late twenties, are best friends from childhood. Fischer moved to Los Angeles, where now he lives rent-free in a church in exchange for coaching soccer, turning off the lights and locking up. Peter visits unexpectedly after a major fight with his girlfriend and Fischer tries to help him heal by picking up cougars for them in a bar and throwing Peter a fake birthday party.

The cougar adventure turns out a bit differently than expected, and the party explodes into a series of disasters which could resolve both their problems. Or not.

Friendship, adulthood, love, responsibility and a free place to live are at stake here. Will Fischer and Peter make the right choices?
