Logline

After a long hiatus, three childhood friends, now adults, come together to punctuate the end of summer in the best way they know how; in a pool. In what at first feels like a carefree reunion quickly goes south as debates over Ada’s now missing cat exposes underlying fissures in their friendship.

Synopsis

Molly, Molly, Molly is a short film centered around the lives of three female friends as they approach a critical juncture in their friendship. Coming together after a long hiatus, they look to punctuate the end of summer in the best way they know how; in a pool. What at first begins as a carefree reunion quickly takes a turn for the worse as debates over Ada’s now missing cat exposes underlying fissures in their longstanding friendship.

Our three characters, Charlie, Ada and Margo, stunted twenty somethings navigating the complicated world of adulthood. Antidepressant popping, stoma bag wearing, anxiety riddled, quarter-lifers held together by childhood bonds that wear thinner by the year.

Thematically speaking, Molly, Molly, Molly is guided by a central question; are friendships meant to last? With each character falling into different camps in that ideological spectrum, the end result is a nuanced, layered portrayal of a moment rarely depicted on screen: the quiet and unspectacular shift in the winds that first sends us adrift.
