The day starts off with a challenge for Ashlie: Have sex with Vincent as dared by best friend Rachel. After all, Rachel is going to with Nathan.

The Short Goodbye

In the midst of a crippling state of writer’s block, film noir-obsessed Trevor gets a text message from his girlfriend: “It’s over. I’m sorry.” The shock sends him spiraling into his own noir fantasy where he must get to the bottom of this mysterious message. But while in his mind he suavely navigates bartenders, gossip columnists, boxers, and risque photographers, in reality, his real problem is that he cannot see what a mess he is.
