synopsis
Breaking Upwards explores a young, real-life New York couple who, battling codependency, decide to intricately strategize their own break up. Based on an actual experiment devised by director/actor Daryl Wein and actress Zoe Lister-Jones, the film loosely interprets a year in their lives exploring alternatives to monogamy, and the madness that ensues. An uncensored look at young love, lust, and the pangs of codependency, 'Breaking Upwards' follows its characters as they navigate each others' emotions across the city they love. It begs the question: is it ever possible to grow apart together?

It is currently being distributed by Regent in June 2009. In 2006 Daryl directed and co-wrote, Unlocked, a short which was an official selection at the Tribeca Film Festival.
