One Last Last Heist: An armed robber sets up his heartbroken buddy on a meet cute - during a heist. For your Consideration: Determined to party at Sundance, three entitled young women meet up at an LA member's only club to make a selection-worthy film. In an unholy fusion of wokeness and cluelessness, they build a narrative from atop the high perch of their privilege.

When Christine is unable to say yes, Alex makes it worse by giving her an ultimatum: either get engaged or break up right now.
