Julia is an English literature teacher struggling with depression as she tries to get her life back together after her lover, Antonia, leaves her. She narrates her emotions throughout the film in a way to try to put a voice to her pain. She is aided by her friends, a clingy student, and eventually a new romantic interest. The torment she feels from the pain of losing who she believed was the love of her life is palpable. As her friends try to help put her pieces back together it becomes clear that Julia will have to navigate the desperate, painful process of healing in her own time but there seems to be light at the end of the tunnel.
