Synopsis

A 'mockumentary' that looks at sexual attraction, love, single life, and dating in the late nineties as seen through the eyes of a somewhat clueless, though completly authoritative extra-terrestrial narrator. In the film, we follow The Male and The Female, Billy and Jenny, from their introduction ritual at the sacred meeting ground--an LA nightclub--through the long, complex, mysterious and dreaded pre-mating rituals we all know and love, yet no human seem able to master. Beginning with the first date, the film follows all the "next steps" and culminates in prenthood and the continuation of this crazy species and its particular mating customs.
