On summer vacation in the suburbs, Misha meets Josh, a sweet, sensitive and offbeat type – with a secret. "My mind plays tricks on me sometimes," he tells her. Intrigued, she brings him along to Montréal to find an apartment, register for classes, and maybe a little more. Misha is eager for classes to begin, but she can’t hide from her quirky friends Angie, Ricky, Mike and Sabrina. A dizzying escapade through Montréal's after-hours club scene ensues. The next day, when class registration doesn’t quite go as planned, a disappointed Misha turns her attentions towards ex-beau, Sam. But Josh’s feelings for Misha spin out of control and Misha unwittingly finds herself having to choose in life, love and destiny. Can she follow her heart and choose what's best for her?
