Jessica is a young woman in search of love. She meets Brandon, her online date, at a local diner. He is handsome, charming, and shares many of the same interests. Could he be the one? A team of four judges inside Jessica’s psyche will determine whether Brandon is a suitable match. Each judge personifies Jessica’s dating criteria: Attraction, Practicality, Companionship and Commitment. With their own disparate values, will they come to an agreement on Jessica’s future? And what do Brandon’s own inner judges have to say about Jessica?
