It is 1995 in USA, downtown Seattle. Olivia has recently been dumped by her boy friend of three years, Matt. As the dust of their breakup settles, Olivia struggles to except that maybe the guy she swore was “the one,” wasn’t, just as Matt struggles with the realization that perhaps his motivation to escape their adult relationship had more to do with him and nothing to do with Olivia. Told through voicemails Olivia and Matt leave each other after their break up, Voicemail explores the stereotypical process and miscommunication a couple goes through after they are no longer together.
