A love story about the impossibility of love, reasons to be pretty introduces us to Greg, who really, truly adores his girlfriend, Steph. Unfortunately, he also says something stupid to his best friend, and when it gets back to her all hell breaks loose.

It is tight, tense and emotionally true, and it portrays characters who actually seem part of the world that the rest of us live in.
