Rendezvous in Chicago: 3 Tales of Love in the Windy City (Dir. Michael Smith) (61 mins.)
Comprised of three vignettes corresponding to the beginning, middle and end stages of a relationship, Paul (Kevin Wehby) attempts to pick up Delaney (Clare Cooney), a bookish grad student, in an otherwise empty wine bar until she turns the tables on him. Rob (Matthew Sherbach) and Andy (Rashaad Hall) are enjoying the bliss of newly formed couplehood. Rob has planned to propose marriage as they walk from their apartment to the lakeshore nearby, but has he made the right decision? Julie (Nina Ganet) comes home from work early to find her boyfriend, Wyatt (Shane Simmons), in bed with another woman. After violently ejecting them from her apartment, Julie begins to fall in love with . . . you the viewer!
