In present-day Manhattan two disenfranchised young women are confused by issues of body image and parental neglect. Nina is overweight, bullied and alone: her mom is in rehab and her father works so much he’s like a stranger. Then she falls for a mysterious older man. Her best friend, Liz, is suspicious – and desperately jealous. But Liz is messed up too: just out of hospital, she’s anorexic and plans to kidnap her own baby niece… Danger lurks – is anyone safe?
