Set within the confines of her hotel room, forty-something Evelyn embarks on a journey of self-discovery with Cleo, a younger woman who exudes the kind of confidence Evelyn has only dreamed of. They share a drink, a smile, an instant connection, and an unforgettable night that Evelyn cannot ignore nor fully encompass.
