‘The Lofts’ By David Velasco

By your mid-20s, life should be different, but your greatest fear is the future may just be a repeat of the past.

Lovelorn Megan broods: At her first full time job after college, her coworker and crush Rick is off to Florida with a new GF. Keeping her feelings under wraps, means opening him up to other women. Just like past crushes, he may be out of reach for good.

Her friend, wide-eyed Russell mixes things up: He needs a diversion from an infatuation with Renee. Others are available, but if he just hangs in there she’ll come around. His empty life, and past, gives him reason to doubt.

Aimless bar back Renee wants stability: Her current BF may be the one to get it. Believing in someone is hard. Disappointment is always around the corner. Silent pessimism harbors reality.

Richard’s trip ends on a bad note. He seeks Megan’s advice. Russell’s unplanned bar hopping with Renee after her sudden break up ends back at his loft. Even if it means jumping off the proverbial cliff, none of them plan going back to an unfulfilling life. Living, working and partying in a revived downtown that is just a big a character as the people themselves, interactions with the denizens of their urban jungle offer no relief.
