Annie (Lynda Steadman) reconnects with an old college friend, Hannah (Katrin Cartlidge); whom she has not seen since leaving university. They spend a weekend together during which Annie recalls her student days, portrayed by a series of flashbacks. During their reunion they encounter faces from the past and discover that despite their successful careers they are still carrying a lot of emotional baggage around. At first glance the characters are dysfunctional but as the weekend unfolds, you discover the two women and their past. Often amusing and occasionally moving.
