Run

Lani is not interested in dating; she's focused on her career. But when her "married with child" sister reminds her that she isn't getting any younger, she realizes that it's not a job that's standing in her way, it's her skepticism and vulnerability.

She takes the bait and what starts as just a voice on an answering machine becomes a budding relationship complete with all the bells and whistles that adorn most girls' dreams. Slowly, Lani finds out that bells tarnish and whistles din.

Lani begins questioning her budding romance yet ignores Richard's selfish and sometimes gross behaviors because she isn't getting any younger. Her life gets complicated when the hot mail room guy, Matt, shows her attention (for which she completely feels unworthy).

Run is a coming of age story about a young woman who is strong yet longs to find someone to sweep her off her feet. Is she desperate enough to forego her own dreams to live out an expectation of her life, or will she have the courage to choose the path less taken?

You're invited to follow Lani's roller coaster journey as you enjoy a front row view into Lani's excitement for a long, overdue first date and all the anxiety that comes from prepping for the big night. Eventually, you'll wish you could hold her hand as she questions everything she thought was right in the relationship, cheer her on as she asserts her independence and cringe when Richard shows up to her office unannounced. What will she decide? What would you?
