9 Full Moons is a powerful, brooding love story about the seemingly implausible relationship between Frankie (Seimetz) and Lev (Roberts), two radically different people who seem to be meant for each other. Set against the country-tinged, singer songwriter hipster music scene of East Los Angeles, Silverlake and Hollywood, the film focuses on the young couple’s struggle with their personal demons as they try to hold on to one another against insurmountable odds.
Frankie is a wildly enigmatic train wreck, a hard-partying social butterfly with an authentic grasp on life. Lev is a solitary, stoic young man with deep aspirations to becoming one of those legendary musical vagabonds he so devoutly looks up to. A near-miss shot of intimacy at an after-hours LA night club leads Frankie and Lev to embark on a frenzied and handicapped affair, their free-spiritedness and non-conformist attitude towards social norms send them off on a rollercoaster ride. In order to jump off that crazy train, and take a serious stab at having a future together, they force themselves to scrutinize and come face-to-face with their painful histories and make peace.
