Synopsis

Frank, in his late twenties, becomes restless as he realizes that his life revolves purely around friends and work. He is aware of a need to move his life into another gear, but while he knows something must change, he is not sure what or how. Some of his friends are settling down, and he knows he is expected to follow suit sooner or later. Frank's indecision comes to a head when he meets Ruby, whose optimism and fresh approach to life and its problems slowly yet dramatically affect him.
