Willow (Evan Rachel Wood) decides to end it all. In a moment of conviction, she pushes the pedal to the metal, yanks the steering wheel, and launches herself off a cliff. Moments later, as the sun is about to set, Ben (Thomas McDonell), pulls onto the exact same lookout, sits on the observation bench. Confused by the fresh skid-marks leading off the cliff but overcome by the serenely and the stunning Los Angeles view, he raises a pistol to his head, and prepares to say his final goodbye. While gathering his courage, Willow, face caked in the white powder from the expulsion of the air-bags, pulls herself back up onto the lookout, takes in the desperate man before her and say's, "Excuse me, can I borrow that when you’re done?"
Willow and Ben instantaneously start to bond over their miserable lives and soon forget their reason for calling it quits. As their new romance starts to blossom, complications ensue when Ben’s ex-girlfriend re-enters his life just as his budding rock band is on the verge of signing a record deal.
Willow and Ben start to exam what truly brought them together. Was this a chance meeting in a moment of desperation and despair? Or perhaps fate intervening in two lost souls. Whatever the reason for this second chance, they booth soon discover a reason to live, love.
