Director Dave Boyle and San Francisco singer-songwriter Goh Nakamura reunite for a sequel to their 2011 romantic comedy Surrogate Valentine
. Dumped by his college professor girlfriend, the moody musician pursues a rebound romance with a fellow musician (Yea-ming Shen) of similarly ironic temperament. There's an extended, ostensibly comic interlude in which Nakamura and two pals try to recover his stolen guitar, but for the most part this is one of those indie walk-and-talks—like Medicine for Melancholy
or In Search of a Midnight Kiss
—that aim no higher than to replicate the buzz of a good first date.
