Medicine for Melancholy

Two African-American twenty-somethings, Micah and Jo, wake up in bed together having no recollection of how they arrived there. From the appearance of things it's clear they've had sex. Realizing neither knows the other's name they introduce themselves over coffee, share a cab, and part ways. Hours later, however, Micah shows up at Jo's apartment to return the purse she had left on the backseat of the cab. Soon a connection is born.
