How to Meet Girls from a Distance

Toby (Richard Falkner) has always been unlucky with girls. Ever since getting stabbed in the throat after asking a girl out in a café, Toby has resolved to learn everything he can about girls before meeting them, so he can craft himself into the man they desire. Along the way, he is helped by eccentric dating coach Carl (Jonathan Brugh), whose unique methods and philosophies are nearly as dodgy as Toby's. Now Toby has finally found Phoebe (Scarlet Hemingway) and he thinks she's the girl of his dreams. She's intelligent, enchanting and she's hot - everything Toby has been looking for. Discovering everything she likes and suddenly developing an interest in Mark Twain and capoeira, Toby is set for success. But this girl brings challenges that Toby hasn't had to face before - including a boyfriend - and Toby finds himself crossing lines he never thought he'd cross. Then there's the problem of how to keep her, without her finding out that he knows everything about her. How far would you go for a crush?
