In love and sex there are no straight answers…
Super-organized Kali McPherson is great at straightening out other people’s lives but less successful at managing her own. When she is forced to dump her unfaithful poet girlfriend, Crystal, perennial playboy Ezra Reese is eager to step up to the plate. Accustomed to getting by on his charms, Reese is perplexed by Kali’s rebuffs. As the two forge an unlikely friendship, they find themselves attracted to one another and are forced to confront their notions of self, sexuality, and the universal matter of learning to love a stranger.
