Dede has become a mess but wants to be responsible; Laura has become sheltered but wants to be more independent. Their relationship gives them a second chance to be the person each hoped to be. Anna has become bitter and wants to feel young again; Peter is very lonely and wants companionship. Falling in love offers a second chance to be the person each longed to be for years. Collectively, all four are given a second chance at forming the family unit they never had before. When a queer photojournalist recovering from addiction and her mother move next door to an autistic young woman and her father, the lines of friendship and family dissolve as each finds the courage to overcome old patterns and self-destructive behaviors.

Director Alex Chu is expected in attendance for post-film Q&A.
