Emma Caulfield and Michelle Borth in TIMER

There's someone out there for everyone, right? What if,  just what if, that might not be your case? That's the major plot point for Jac Schaeffer's romantic comedy, TIMER. In the film, people start purchasing this thing for their wrist called "TiMER," which tells you the exact countdown for when you'll meet your true love. When Oona O’Leary (Emma Caulfield, Buffy the Vampire Slayer) gets one of her own, the TiMER shows blank. She begins the dating process but quickly writes off men whose TiMERs clearly aren't ticking for her. This begs the question - will she ever find true love?

Present Pictures sent us over an exclusive clip from the film, called "Oona And Steph Changing." Advanced apologies to the hormonal teenagers out there, as there's not a lot of skin here. In this scene, Steph (Michelle Borth) is giving Oona advice on men and why random sex is awesome. Check out the clip after the break.

TIMER is now open in L.A. and will open in N.Y.C. on May 14. If you have V.O.D., you can catch it on Tribeca's channel now.

Official Synopsis:
What if a clock could count down to the moment you meet your soul mate? In this alternate version of present day Los Angeles, a revolutionary device called the TiMER fulfills this very fantasy. For a reasonable installation fee and a moderate monthly charge, a TiMER is implanted in the wrist and promises to accurately display the number of days, hours, minutes and seconds until the owner’s date with destiny.

However, things aren’t so easy for Oona O’Leary (EMMA CAULFIELD, Buffy the Vampire Slayer). Oona faces the rare dilemma of a blank TiMER; her soul mate—whoever and wherever he is—doesn’t have a TiMER. While her family and friends move through life with predetermined romantic fates, Oona searches for her perfect match via the process of elimination, tentatively dating TiMER-less men, but never getting emotionally invested. Often, Oona even convinces her suitors to get TiMERs, only to have her hopes crushed time and time again. Staring down the barrel of thirty and tired of waiting for her would-be life partner to get off the dime, Oona breaks her own rules and falls for Mikey (JOHN PATRICK AMEDORI, Gossip Girl), a charming and inappropriately young supermarket clerk with a countdown of four months.

But what will happen when those four months are up? Only when Oona ignores the ticking clock can she finally experience the exhilarating and unpredictable hot mess that is love
