1. Martin follows his longtime girlfriend to the small town of Hope, an ironically named hamlet where his dreams die a slow death. His settled lifestyle is suddenly disrupted when he must take his best friend's girl, Suzanne, on a trip back to the city for a secret abortion. But when fate conspires to strand them there for 24 hours, they must find a way to kill the time without killing each other. What began as an awkward errand blossoms into a romantic awakening that will change their lives forever and – ultimately – leave them with some very difficult decisions to make.
