Can you rewrite a life? Burnt out on her career, successful LA actress Anna Baskin (Maggie Siff) abruptly walks off her mind-numbing, sexist network show. She runs away to New York, hoping to reconnect with two old friends (Cara Seymour, John Ortiz), former theater collaborators she'd abandoned for Hollywood who now find themselves struggling to survive in the rapidly gentrifying city. As Anna's arrival tears open old wounds all three are forced to reckon with their past and uncertain futures.
