It all rattles along amiably enough. Despite the no technology rule, Su writes down and brings along a survey meant to get to know one another better which prompts some slight bickering, but eventually, Jack answers a question about something he has never told Su with overwhelming vulnerability (more importantly, it’s a well-delivered scene that allows viewers to easier buy into what’s to come).

The first act is primarily comprised of audio and visual gags including everything from strange noises to murders going on in the background as they engage in activities such as hiking, drinking, making campfires, making out, and sometimes a combination of all of the above. The flip on the script here (the film was written and directed both by Alex Huston Fischer and Eleanor Wilson) is that Su and Jack have accepted that they are not suitable for this situation at all.
