Here’s the short synopsis:
She’s in Portland follows two men who seemingly admire each other’s lives and feel trapped in their own. Wes, tied to his demanding corporate career and his responsibilities to his growing family extends a work trip to drag his dispirited artist friend Luke up to the California Coast to find Luke’s “one that got away.” Through their travels, the journey takes a deeper look into life choices, acceptance, and commitment.
