Kevin, a writer, and Laura, an actress are two twenty-somethings struggling with work and love in Hollywood. After each endures yet another demoralizing meeting, Kevin and Laura bump into each other at a coffee shop--literally, resulting in Laura spilling her drink all over Kevin's shirt--not the best of introductions. Days later and mired in respective, albeit differing relationship woes (for Laura, the lack thereof; for Kevin, a dimwit of a girlfriend, Cyndy, with whom he has nothing in common), their thoughts drift toward finding each other. . . but without any common ground save for the coffee shop, neither has much upon which to base his or her search.
