Synopsis: In colorful, bustling modern-day Manhattan, Rafi Gardet, a beautiful 37-year-old photography producer reeling from a recent divorce, meets David Bloomberg, a handsome 23-year-old painter recently out of college. Rafi's therapist, Dr. Lisa Metzger, who is working to help Rafi overcome her fears of intimacy, finds out that Rafi's new lover is--unfortunately for Lisa--her only son, David. Both David and Rafi must contend with their 14-year age gap, vastly different backgrounds and the demands of David's traditional mother. Despite their intense attraction, the charmed couple soon realizes that vastly different ages and backgrounds create much conflict. A Jewish hip-hop lover and closet painter who still lives with his grandparents, David has little in common with Rafi--a non-practicing Catholic from a wealthy, broken family who travels in the sophisticated, high-end world of fashion.

- I'll see you in there.

- Okay, good. We'll be in...

Get in the bun.

Get in the bun.

It's locked.

What?

The door. It won't open.

So, does this

happen to you a lot?

Actually, not often enough.

So what are we gonna do?

Wait till somebody comes out.

Right.

- Thank you.

- Yeah.

So, how long

have you guys been dating?

- Couple of weeks.

- We're not dating.

Okay. Next question.

I mean, we only went out twice

before this.

- Do you consider that dating?

- I guess I did.

I'm sorry.

I mean, to me,

dating sounds more serious.

Like you've already been

going out for a couple of months, like...

Maybe you don't

live together...

but you definitely stay over

a couple of nights a week.

You don't worry about

who paid for the last meal anymore.

You've seen each other pee,

you know?

More serious kind of stuff.

Then what do you call this?

Well, that's it.

There are officially

no cute boys left here.

All right.

It's so nice to get out.

It was nice to meet you.

Nice to meet you, too.

Dave. Very nice to see you.

Good night.

Bye. Nice to meet you.

One, two, three, four.

Just fucking call her.

Hello.

Hello?

-Hello?

- Hi. It's Dave...

Bloomberg.

Did you just call me?

Yes.

We get disconnected?

No.

Did you hang up?

Uh-huh.

They say it's better

to lie sometimes...

but I can't really do that

when I'm this nervous.

I think I need to be

in a better place.

I like it better this way.

I've been around enough lying to say so.

You had a lot of liars

in your life, huh?

- What?

- Shit.

Would you like to go out

to dinner with me tomorrow?

David, I'm making a sandwich.

Do you want one?

No, I'm fine!

- Who's that?

- That's my roommates.

So, do you want

to have dinner?

- Yes.

- Yeah?

I'll call you tomorrow.

Okay.

Okay.

- Bye.
