Pull Out

15 years, 5 wrecked relationships, go back and find out why. Over the course of one long, hot summer, filmmaker Jyllian Gunther showed up on the doorsteps of her most significant Ex’s to pose the question: What went wrong? From New York to San Francisco to Paris, PULL OUT pulls out all the stops—what happens along the way includes a rekindled romance, tattooing, rejection, a stakeout, tarantulas, sex, accusations, indifference, and a nostalgia that climaxes with the realization that the past is subjective and memory is selective.”   Watch here.
