In Partnership with the Milwaukee Film Festival… A Screening of Keep The Change & Panel Discussion Event

But when he’s assigned to visit the Brooklyn Bridge with the vivacious Sarah, sparks fly and his convictions are tested. Their budding relationship must weather Sarah’s romantic past, David’s judgmental mother, and their own pre-conceptions of what love is supposed to look like.

When: 12:30 p.m. film showing; 2:00-3:30 p.m.  panel discussion
