FULL-LENGTH: When Cordell brings Nat home from the bar, his plans for a one-night stand are put on hold by his eccentric roommate, Riley. And much to Cordell’s annoyance, Nat is intrigued by Riley's oddities, which include the willingness to complete an all-white puzzle. As the night goes on, Cordell is pushed to explore something he’s avoided for years- an unopened briefcase left to him by his estranged and now-deceased father. The briefcase reveals seemingly meaningless scraps of fabric, but the trio soon realize that the fabric is actually remnants of a famous Rembrandt painting that was stolen, presumably by Cordell’s deadbeat father.

My Father Left Us and All I Got Was This Rembrandt

    Bultrowicz here crafts a compact case of coitus interruptus, a potential hook-up which is uncoupled by the roommate, a savant whose interest in jigsaw puzzles becomes a puzzle to piece togther a masterpiece. It's a witty Millennial moment about relationships, as the invited guest gets to know these two who bicker like affectionate siblings, exchanging sharp, intelligent yet blasé banter. Nothing good happens past 2 AM.
