So, what is The End of Longing all about?

A sharply written and hilarious dark comedy, The End of Longing, will make you realise that broken people don’t need to stay broken.

We’ll meet Jack, Stephanie, Joseph and Stevie: four lost souls, entering their forties and searching for meaning. After sharing one raucous night together in a downtown LA bar, their lives become irreversibly entwined in a rollercoaster journey that forces them to confront the darker sides of their relationships.
