It’s 1995 and 21-year-old Joni Johnson is fresh out of art school and loving her life. Working at Harland, a French restaurant, makes her happy, and its owner and chef make her evenings both entertaining and complicated. By day, Joni sets up her easel in her backyard bungalow, turns on music, and paints.

But when Joni’s best friend, Annabelle, arrives on her doorstep, everything changes. Joni’s life seems lacklustre in comparison to Annabelle’s rising star. And when Annabelle makes a beeline for the one man who seems interested in Joni, it looks unlikely that their friendship will survive.
