EPISODE 2: PEE SITTING DOWN

 
Coproducers Eddie Ruby.banner.4.jpg
 

SYNOPSIS


Inspired by real events, Tinder is the Night chronicles the online dating adventures of Eddie and her girlfriends in New York City and the gorgeous, ugly, sexy, kinky, fantastically weird men and women they meet along the way. In the first episode, poor, dorky Eddie is excited about a hot first date, and her best friends try to help her comprehend the intricacies of online flirting to no avail. However, it takes a run-in with an ominous night terror for Eddie to understand that happiness starts with self-love. In the second episode, bohemian Ruby and handsome Julian are having a fabulous first date, but when Ruby wants him to go home with her, Julian surprises her with his sexual proclivities. He tries to manipulate her into fulfilling his fantasies, but Ruby gets the upper hand in the film's hilarious climax. In future episodes, we follow fellow friends Porsche and Lolly on their own dating disasters.
