About Starlit:
Jessica Alvarez (Valentina Corbella) is twenty-four and bored. She craves independence and adventure; she needs to feel alive. What she has is an MBA, a safe corporate gig, a bland boyfriend Roger (Cory Cannataro), a steady supply of pills for her ADHD and a room at home with a suffocating mother (Liz Chuday). Then she meets a mechanic (Anthony Tether) who steals her heart. They hit the road, hiking the Appalachian Trail by day and stargazing at night. But is he too good to be true?
