After a workshop reading in November 2008, On the Leesh shot this short comedy in April 2009 in Brooklyn, NY.

Milestone writer/director Julie Tortorici was profiled by The Record Pilot when the movie was screened at 2010's Long Island International Film Festival.


When tubs of ice cream, drinking with friends and sad movies don't get you past your heartbreak... it's time to pull out the big guns. Milestone is a short comedy with a big gun.
