In the depths of Winnipeg winter, when everyone covers their faces in scarves and balaclavas to protect them from the cold, Iris mistakes Simon for someone she knows. This initiates an energetic, fun, sexy affair – complete with all the passion and intensity of a 20something infatuation.
But when it starts to feel like real love, Simon gets freaked out, and decides to take a step back to get perspective – by leaving town for a few weeks. Iris interprets “let’s take a break” like most of us would, and downloads an app to hook up with a bunch of other people. Then, when Simon returns, earnest in his rekindled love for Iris, he discovers she’s been unfaithful, and is devastated. He takes off. When she goes looking for him, and starts meeting other people in Simon’s life, she finds out she doesn’t know him anywhere near as well as she thought she did.

I PROPOSE WE NEVER SEE EACH OTHER AGAIN AFTER TONIGHT was shot on weekends and evenings over a 3-month period, because the lead actor, Hera Nalam, was in a play at the same time, and so the crew had to find time inbetween her performamces to shoot. When you watch the film, you can see deepest winter change slowly to the puddles and dust of late spring.
