Jonathan and Andre are best friends who have loved the film, Waiting to Exhale since they were kids. Once they mature into black gay men, their appreciate for Terry McMillan’s classic deepens as their adult lives seem to mirror the situations of the woman in the film they love so much. Just like Robin, Gloria, Bernadine, and Savannah, will they both learn to let go of all the things holding them back or will they continue waiting to exhale?
