19-year-old Natalie is confined to her room because of her crippling OCD (Obsessive Compulsive Disorder). She spends her days looking out the window at Guy, a young man she sees in the park every day, fantasizing of a romantic relationship with him. 20-year-old Guy is planning to commit suicide, yet one thing stands in his way - he wants to lose his virginity before he dies. Hopelessly ridden with social anxiety, he turns to Pixie, a young prostitute with a good heart and a strange eating disorder. When fate conspires the three to meet on the day of Natalie's birthday, events spiral into one life-changing night of adventure, horror, madness and passion.
