After three months of play-dating, this couple realised that they hardly know each other. It’s a casual relationship; they’re activity partners going through the motions of life.
Until the unexpected happens — a condom was either misplaced, or missing. It throws their relationship off the rails.
It’s easier to be blasé about life, to believe in the one-day-at-a-time ethos, than to admit that they’re both vagrants in the big city, finding a home for their hearts.
And so it begins, a chase for the essence of life. Not prematurely, or with a delayed reaction.
Love, that’s what they both wanted. No morning-after pill could deny them that.
