Screening: Saturday, October 12, 2013, 5:30 PM - 7:30 PM | [Buy Tickets]

Synopsis: Tisha Boyd, an African American comic book illustrator and Ashley Fairchild, her Caucasian, fashion designer best friend, sit in Yoshi’s Coffee Shop searching for men online and discussing their dating lives in Los Angeles. They both seem to think that the other one has it easier. The coffee shop owner, Yoshi Wheeler, overhears their exchange just as Tisha asks him to make her an espresso. Yoshi obliges but instead of making them an espresso with his regular coffee, he uses a special blend that he picked up in India. Tisha and Ashley drink their espressos. However things get weird when they later wake up in each other’s bodies, only to discover that they’re stuck this way for 24 hours.
