Annie and Liza meet at the Metropolitain Museum of Art and form a friendship that makes Liza question where her thoughts are coming from. When Liza and Annie unexpectedly begin kissing one another on the beach, their relationships moves into a new dimension. Over spring break, though, something happens that brings an end to their relationship. Now away at college at MIT, Liza can’t get Annie off her mind.
