While filming 2012’s About Cherry, actor James Franco had the opportunity to explore the former San Francisco Armory.

Mentioning anything that happens beyond the film’s first few minutes would spoil its many surprises; The One I Love is best experienced as a series of unexpected, blindsiding twists.
