Mary hunts for a missing family heirloom. Sam obsesses over landing a French-speaking date to the dance. Rebecca will do anything for a promotion at the ice cream shop. Meredith just wants to finish her essay. As a blizzard rages outside, four teenage lives simultaneously go haywire amid phone calls, video calls, mistaken identities and metaphorical shipwrecks. Four tiny tragedies take on Shakespearean proportions as this farce for the digital age explores just how far desperation can take us, and what happens when there aren't enough happy endings to go around.
