Plot – Spoilers:
Teenagers Megan and Amy are best friends who look out for each other. Megan is popular and cooler but with a messed up history. She admires the ostensible stability that Amy represents. Amy in turn looks up to Megan and the fun experiences she seems to have, but is widely acknowledged in Megan’s world as her particularly cringey friend.
The little things that occupy their lives get more meaningful when Megan decides to hook up with someone she just met on the internet.
