Lona has dropped out of art school and no one is quite sure why, least of all Lona. Itís just that nothing in her life seems to make sense anymore, including art. She spends her days sneaking into the darkroom at her old school to develop photographs and her nights DJ-ing at the local roller disco.

Her aimlessness terrifies her, but everyone else appears oblivious to her fears: her parents are bewildered by her sudden lack of ambition, her brother is preoccupied with his new girlfriend, and her best friend Tab seems to be drifting away. Even a budding relationship with a bass-playing, cello-shredding med student isnít enough to shake her existential angst.

Lona knows itís up to her to figure out what she wants to do with her life: the problem is, she has absolutely no idea where to start.
