Synopsis

Cherps is a fresh and charming romantic comedy that draws equally on traditions of British story telling and New York independent filmmaking.
Reggie is a thirtysomething second-generation black British west London geezer. He likes to live on the fly; ducking and diving, and avoiding work whenever possible. He also likes to cherps women. In black British street slang, 'to cherps' is to chat up or flirt with women. Simple.

But Reggie's wild days are numbered when his longtime baby-mother, Sandra, puts the clamps on him; she wants him to settle down and stop running with his home boys. This sends Reggie into a tail spin. Settle down?! Make a commitment?! These are big concepts that need a lot of thought.

And so over the next seven days our hero goes on an existential journey into the meaning of commitment, the meaning of happiness the meaning of life, no less.
