A woman who has an obsession with a boy she liked from school is confessed to by a coworker around the same time she manages to meet her longtime crush again. She’s kinda nuts. It’s a lot of fun. Watch the trailer and that’s the vibe of the movie.

Personal Opinion

I watched about half of this but it got to an awkward scene and I struggle with awkward scenes but maybe watching it with others / having the pressure to finish it would help. It was an absolute riot to watch up til then though, if you enjoy absurd comedy I recommend it.
I will say that I was watching it with JP subs and there is no way I could have kept up without them because the main character likes to talk at high speed about complete non-sequiturs so context will do nothing to save you. It’s on viki though so I imagine there are English and other language subs available for those who’d like those.
