NEWNESS follows Martin (Hoult) and Gabi (Costa), two millennials in Los Angeles navigating a social-media driven hook-up culture that begin a relationship which pushes both emotional and physical boundaries.

With so many opportunities available, can two people sustain a fulfilling relationship, or will they flounder in a sea of too many options?
