When six friends reunite for a weekend at the beach, a relaxing getaway turns into an uninvited opportunity to deal with their emotional baggage.

That’s Not Us follows three couples—one lesbian, one gay and one straight—during a presumably carefree weekend full of memories, intimate moments and exploration.

Two have come to rekindle their sex life, while another couple grapples with how a prestigious grad program will force them hundreds of miles apart.2

For the third, the revelation that one of them doesn’t know how to ride a bike spurs a begrudging effort to grow together.

But while the serene backdrop seems like the perfect place to soften the blows of their difficult issues, the tension that boils may be enough to end each relationship altogether.

That’s Not Us is a fleeting and bare look into the lives of six twentysomethings as they fight growing older and growing apart to be the people—and couples—they fell in love with.
