This film from Enfuego Entertainment stars Kevin J. Ryan and Roxanne Dover. Written and Directed by Eric Smith-Gunn. The story is about two people who meet in a park and decide to have an amorous exchange with each other without ever saying one word. It's really a story about moments that go by that you can never get back. It's about taking a chance and not being afraid of the outcome. It's about losing the one you love or one you could have loved.
