In Before We Go, Nick Vaughan (Evans) is a down on his luck jazz trumpet player playing alone one evening in Grand Central Station when he catches sight of a beautiful woman (Eve), forlorn at having missed the last train to Boston. Attempting to lend a hand, Nick volunteers his services to help get her home, little realizing that such a feat is much easier said than done. Soon, Nick and this mysterious woman are racing all over the Big Apple, following every possible lead and slowly realizing that, while they may be very different people under the surface than they originally let on, they’re both desperately in need of someone to truly trust. As their relationship grows throughout the course of the evening, the mystery deepens and the stakes are raised.

Executive producers include Peter Pastorelli, James McGough and Ron Bass – the latter of whom also wrote the screenplay with Jen Smolka, Chris Shafer and Paul Vicknair.
