The world premiere of THIS TIME is an LA Love story perfect for 1st dates, dates with good friends, or a pregame to a late night taco run.
THIS TIME, directed by Sebastien Tobler, introduces us to long lost high school sweethearts, Laela (Leila Perry) and Colin (Ken Kirby), who unexpectedly reunite in Los Angeles 23 years after being separated during the 1998 riots in Jakarta, where they were torn apart without notice, unable to say goodbye, and flown away to different countries.
As the star-crossed lovers examine the choices that led them down their separate paths and back again, Laela and Colin must decide if they’re still in love or just nostalgic for the past.
