A group of childhood friends get together for a casual goodbye party before one of them moves across the country. Jordan, bound for LA, hosts the splintered group with the goal of having one nice evening together before she leaves. Armed with nostalgia and optimism, she attempts to contrive fun, which proves difficult given everyone’s shortened attention span. With each incoming notification and incidental scroll, their tenuous connection weakens and intimacy grows harder to reach. Confronted by impending change and the loss that comes with it, they turn to their devices for comfort. Lost in their own personalized, digital universe, these friends fall prey to distraction and isolation. Little Boxes is a portrait of people grasping for authentic connection while technology systematically interferes.
