Sexy and soapy, this modern-day romance about sexually adventurous couples mixing things up is a gem.

An engaging look at a pair of New York couples whose love lives intersect, crisscross, circle and backtrack in hip and provocative ways.

Romantic confusion and youthful insecurity drive "The Happy Sad," a New York relationship roundelay as restless as the city itself.
