Frankie and Johnny have just had sex for the first time. Two ordinary people in New York City, each with their own history of disappointments, hoping for more than a one-night stand. Frankie wants Johnny to put on his clothes and leave, so she can eat ice-cream with the TV on. But Johnny, a compulsive talker (and romantic), has other ideas. Tender and funny, it’s an intimate look at the first fragile moments of risking your heart and taking a chance.

Mark Calvert directs this offbeat romantic comedy, first produced in New York 30 years ago with Kathy Bates and Kenneth Welsh and later made into a film starring Al Pacino and Michelle Pfeiffer.
