Plot Summary

Liz Danfield is at a crossroads in her college career. Almost ready to graduate with a degree in theater, she is unsure of the path she should be following. Full of insecurities, Liz has found the theatre world to be the perfect accomplice to help her hide from herself. With the help of an unlikely friend, she learns to stop hiding who she is and face reality. Her friend, a counselor, changes her life.
