Love Runs Out


Julie & her bestie from school, Jan share a Kloof street flat and work in a tragically hip little Cape Town restaurant. 

When Troy, local fuc boi and perhaps sometimes drug dealer, that they’re both crushing on, needs a place to stay, they rush to offer him their couch.

Against a backdrop of hastily thrown together hipster gigs, cheap drugs and backstabberey, the three of them fall into a picture perfect polyamorous reverie, replete with fairy lights, slo mo flashbacks and sketchy definitions of the word “commitment”.

When Julie’s younger sister, JESSE, runs away to Joburg, Troy unexpectedly offers to go and bring her back - causing the past to rear its ugly head and leaving the three of them to live with the consequences of their semantic slippages.
