At 24, Syd has landed what seems to be a dream job at a prestigious photography magazine, but despite a recent promotion and the long hours she works, she’s still stuck fetching coffee. Living with her long-time boyfriend James, Syd has reached a comfortable, if not particularly exciting level of stability. One night, while soaking in the tub, She notices a leak in the ceiling and ventures upstairs to investigate. Her upstairs neighbour turns out to be the enchanting, elusive Lucy Berliner. A once-celebrated photographer who dropped out of the art scene ten years earlier, Lucy now lives with her drug-addicted German girlfriend, a former actress named Greta. They open the door to an uncharted world for Syd.
