Trailer


SALAD DAYS is a comedic love triangle told through three interconnected stories.

Caitlin (Emily Yoshida) is in the midst of a quarter-life crisis. She has created “Condor Hero,” a profile to communicate with a secret internet crush. Now she must decide whether or not they should meet in person…

A devastating car wreck forces Alex (Dave Horwitz) to reexamine his lifestyle and salvage his past relationships, including reconciling with a lost love: his ex-girlfriend Caitlin…

Anthony (Anthony Kuan), a misunderstood computer nerd, has the chance to meet the girl of his dreams – a geeky-cute video artist who he pines after on a social networking site. But finding an internet connection in order to contact her proves more difficult than he ever imagined…

SALAD DAYS offers a funny and unique perspective on the identities people create to protect themselves from the frustration and heartbreak of relationships in the real world.
