: : : Medicine for Melancholy

Story

Medicine for Melancholy tells the story of two young African-American twenty-somethings named Micah and Jo who wake up in the same bed without having any recollection of how they arrived to that point. From the appearnce of things it's obvious to even the casual observer that they've had sex.
Realizing that neither knows the name of the person with whom they unexpectedly slept with, they introduce themselves over coffee, share a cab, and part ways. But when Micah shows up at Jo's apartment hours later to return the purse that she left on the backseat, a deeper connection could very well be possible.
Where will this unexpected relationship turn?
Medicine for Melancholy won the Special Jury Prize @ the 2008 Sarasota Film Festival for Best Cinematography.
