Synopsis

Best friends since sixth grade, Amelia and Laura have shared everything including their cat, Big Jeans. Both women are approaching thirty and for the first time, their lives are on different tracks. A therapist-in-training, Laura is about to marry Frank. But as the wedding approaches she begins to get cold feet. Amelia, on the other hand, can't get past the first date with anyone. Even Bill, the strange video store clerk, dumps her after only one night of horror conventions. And her ex-boyfriend Andrew won't stop hitting her up for cash. Approaching the crossroads of life without a map, Amelia and Laura are walking and talking, trying to adjust their friendship to the challenges of adulthood.
