Based on the filmmakers' actual experience, and starring the filmmakers themselves, "Breaking Upwards" explores a young, real life New York couple who, fours years into their relationship and battling codependency, decide to intricately strategize their own break up. The film loosely interprets a year in their lives exploring alternatives to monogamy and the madness that ensues. It begs the question: is it ever possible to grow apart together?
