Leaving small town life in her dust, Adele moves wide eyed to New York City, while her best friend Sara is stuck in their hometown. Separate for the first time in their lives, the film charts new relationships with boys, girls and eccentric old ladies. Beautiful music sequences capture fleeting emotions as their lives move in unexpected directions. The film opens with a prelude, a dark, but sweet tale of high school love titled "The Most Girl Part of You". It is based on a short story of the same name by acclaimed author Amy Hempel.
