And what starts off as an innocent friendship, with lazy days hanging out on the beach and partying with her colorful friends, soon becomes a temptation for Diego, as Vanessa makes it clear she is open to more than just friendship. Eventually Diego is made to choose between the girl he barely knows, but promises the adventure he's always secretly yearned for, and his wife whom he loves, but who wants him to settle down into a more traditional life.

This heat wave expected

to continue for at least

another three days.

Stay cool however

you can and make sure

you're drinking lots of water.

- Happy birthday, bear.

Wake up.


Make a wish.

- You didn't have to do that.

- Don't get too excited,

they're whole wheat.

- Yikes.

- Mm, yikes.


- What is this?

You already got me

the trip to Miami.

- It's just a little something.

You know, for inspiration

while you're writing.

Open it.

- Oh, thanks, tiger.

- You like it?

- Yeah, it's really cool.

- Good.

Hey, guess what I started

taking this morning?

- What?

- The prenatal vitamins.

- I thought we weren't gonna

start trying 'til September.

- Yeah, that's next month.

- Oh, right.

- What's wrong?

- Nothing.

Wait, can you just lie

down here for a second.

- I'm late for the

photo shoot, remember?

And you should actually start

packing soon for your flight.

I left you the shirt for

Carol's wedding in the bathroom

so just don't forget it.

- Okay.

Wait, can I just smell

you before you go?


You sure you don't wanna

just come with me now?

- I can't, baby.

It's just two weeks.

It'll go by fast, okay?


- Hm?

- Happy birthday.

- I love you.

- I love you.

Call me when you get in, okay?

- Okay.

- Okay.

- How ya doin'?


- Hey, checking

in for Diego Diaz.

- Okay.

Hey Vanessa.

Okay, you're all set, sir.

Here's your room key.

- Thanks.

- Hello?

- Hey.

- Hey. You there?

- Just checked in.

- So, how is it?

- It's great.

You picked a good one.

They got a pool and everything.

- So, what's your plans

for the rest of the day?

- I don't know.

Was thinkin' about

maybe callin' Dave,

maybe goin' out tonight.

Or maybe just

laying low so I can

wake up fresh

tomorrow and write.

- Bear, I'm sorry

I couldn't be there

with you on your birthday.

- It's okay.

How'd your shoot go?

- Good...

Oh, can we talk later?

That's actually Callie calling.

- Yeah, I'll call you later.

- Okay.

Ciao, Chulita.

- Adios, guapo.

- Happy birthday.

- What's up?

- How you doin'?

- Good.

It's casual, but...

- Oh, this is Miami casual.

- Want a cerveza?

- Sure.

Oh, this is a nice

place you got here.

- Yeah, Mariana hooked it up.

- Where is Mariana?

- She's coming next weekend

for Carol's wedding.

You remember Carol, right?

- Yeah, that

was that blonde, right?

- No, Mariana's ex-roommate.

- Oh yeah, that's right.

Let's have a toast to your

30th birthday, my friend.

- Thank you.

- Salut.

So, what you doing nowadays?

- I'm working at a

hedge fund right now

that Mariana's dad

hooked me up with.

It's cool.

It's keeping Mariana off my back

and I'm making three times

more than I was waiting tables,

but they want me to climb

the corporate ladder

and take my series 7.

- So what kind of

medication is that?

- Exactly.

So I came down a few days

early to finish my book.

- Yeah, yeah, the

brothers from queens.

- That's the one.

- Well, that's blade.

It's time to go, my friend.

- Already?

Let's down it.

- Cheers.

- Hey.

Hey, dude.

Dude, wake up.

Looks like you're gonna

need some of this.

You can get pretty

fried out here.

- Thanks.

- Rough night?

- You could say that.

- I'm Vanessa.

- Diego.

- That's okay.

So, you in town visiting?

I saw you yesterday

with your luggage.

- Yeah, a little

summer vacation.

- Sweet.

Where are you from?

- New York.

- Oh, that explains

your pastiness.

- Where are you from?

- Oh, no, I live here, yeah.

I actually work at the

bar here at the hotel.

Just came by to

pick something up.

Thought you needed

a little rescuing.

- Thanks.

- Mm-hm.

Oh, keep it.

I've got plenty.

See ya around.

- See ya.


- Hey.

You again.

- Hey.

- Didn't your mom ever

teach you not to shop

on an empty stomach?

- Didn't your mom ever teach

you not to stalk people?

Thanks for saving

my life earlier.

- Ooh, are you sure about that?


- No.

- So, I know you got enough

food to last you a lifetime,

but I'm having a little

dinner party at my place

if you wanna come by.

- Thanks, but I got a

lot of work to get done

before my wife gets

into town, so...

- All right.

In case you change your mind.

- Alrighty then.

See ya.

- Dude.

- Diego!

- See ya.

- See ya.

You made it.

- Yeah.

- It's perfect timing.

Everybody, this is Diego.

Mauricio from college.

And this is Giaco.

- Giaco.

- Diego.

- Dortea.

- Diego.

- And Lance from my

music video days.

- Diego, nice to meet you.

- Let's get you a drink.

- All right.

Sorry for the half bottle.

- Are you kidding?

It's perfect.

- It's a pretty nice place.

You live here by yourself?

- I'm house sitting

for a friend.

He's away on business, so...

I didn't think you

were gonna make it.

- I was tryin' to be good.

- But you can be good tomorrow.

- Yeah.

Where's the bathroom?

- Just right

through those doors.

- Hi.

- Hey, tiger.

Sorry, I saw that

I missed your call.

- It's okay.

Where are you?

- Dave's friend's

having a get together.

- Oh, cool.

Did you get a lot of

writing done today?

- Yeah, I did.

- You think you'll

be done by the summer?

- Yeah, maybe.

- Well, I'm really proud of you.

But I'll let you get

back to your party.

I just wanted to say goodnight.


Goodnight, Chulita.

- Bye, guapo.

- Everything okay?

- Yeah, I just had

to call the wife.

- Short leash, huh?

Come on, we're

gonna play a game.

- What's that?

- It's called sex,

drugs, and rock and roll.

Okay, this time you

start off, you start off.

- Autoerotic aphyxiation.

- Hey!

- Oh, wow, fancy.

- Fancy pants.

- Okay, um, blowj*bs.

- I think I can say c*nt.

C*nt's a word at

this point, right?

- Okay, sure.

- Sure.

- Uh, dick.

- Um, ecstasy.


- Obviously.

- Obviously.

- Uh, f***.

- Guns.


- Drink, drink, drink!

- Drink!

- Um...

H, uh...

Nope, that's not a word.

- Drink!

- You were lookin' for ho.

- Ready?

- Yes.

- On the count of three!

One, two, three!

- Hey, you've reached Dave.

Leave a message.

- Yo, call me.

- You're alive.

- I survived.

- Did you have fun?

- Oh yeah.

Are you kidding me?

- Good.

I'm glad.

- Cute kid.

- You and your wife plan on

having kids anytime soon?

- Yeah.


- How many?

- I don't know.

Three or four.

- Wow, that's ambitious.

- Stop staring at me.

- How old are you?

If you don't mind me asking.

- I just turned 30.

- Oh no, a Leo.

- Oh no, an astrology weirdo.

- I said stop staring at me.

- Alexander.

- Okay, um,

let's go to the beach

before you get assaulted

by a five year-old.

- Sounds like a plan.

- You don't mind, right?

- Nope.

- I just really hate tan lines.

- Me, too.

Nice tattoo.

- Thanks.

Used to say Alberto in cursive,

but then when we got a

divorce I just did this.

- It really is a tattoo?

I thought it was, like, a

club stamp or something.

- Oh no.

Ooh, yeah, I was kinda going

for a minimal art thing.

But sure, club stamp, works.
