Amazon Prime’s period romantic drama written and directed by Eugene Ashe. Set in 1950s New York, the story centers on Sylvie (Tessa Thompson), who dreams of a career in television and spends her summer days helping in her father’s record store, and Robert (Nnamdi Asomugha), a saxophonist, who spends late nights playing as a member of a jazz quartet. When Robert takes a part-time job at the record store, the two begin a friendship that sparks a deep passion in each of them unlike anything they have felt before. But as the summer winds down, life takes them in different directions, bringing their relationship to an end. Years pass, and in a chance meeting, Sylvie and Robert cross paths again, only to find that while their lives have changed, their feelings for each other remain the same.

Mona: Tell me about this new boy at the store.
Sylvie: I am not answering that.
Mona: Is he cute?
Sylvie: I didn’t really notice. That much.
Sylvie: Hey, what’s your favorite song in this?
Robert: “You Don’t Know What Love Is”.
Robert: [to Sylvie] My band’s playing tonight at nine if you want to come.
Robert: I’ve never met a girl who knows much about music as you do, and television.
Sylvie: Don’t get me started. We’ve seen every episode of everything.
Mona: How was it?
Sylvie: He’s extraordinary.
[as Robert and Sylvie are absorbed in each other dancing]
Connie: You don’t have to go home, but you can’t stay here.
Robert: [to Sylvie] Can I walk you?
Robert: Life’s too short to waste time on things you don’t absolutely love.
Sylvie: But how do you know if you love something absolutely?
Robert: I guess when it’s the only thing that matters.
Robert: The band got offered a gig in Paris. Come with us on tour.
Sylvie: I’m afraid I can’t.
Sylvie: But I think you very well could be the next John Coltrane.
Robert: And what are you going to be?
Kate: Are you married?
Kate: Producer’s assistant is not the best job for a housewife. Why should I hire you?
Sylvie: Because I didn’t know that a N**** woman television producer even existed. And all my life that is all I’ve ever wanted to be.
Sylvie: What are you doing in New York?
Robert: Recording an album.
Sylvie: It’s so good to see you.
Robert: You too.
Lacy: [to Sylvie] You’re working? You’re not being a very hostess. And what will people say?
Sylvie: [to Lacy] I can’t be the woman of your dreams while also trying to be the woman of my own.
[to Robert, reading from a fortune cookie]
Sylvie: “Pleasant experiences ahead. Don’t pass it by.”
Robert: I guess I just wanted you to be happy. Even if I couldn’t be a part of your life.
