After another disastrous breakup slash firing, she moves back to her hometown, works in a bar, joins the local drama group and, in a shocking turn of events, falls in love. She is confronted with the steps everyone expects her to take; get married, buy house, have baby. Repeat final step until dead. And it does not sit well. This is the backwards love story of a girl who is figuring out what she wants, just as she realises what she has.
