Sutter lives in the present as a self-possessed high school senior and life of the party with satisfying employment and no plans for the future. An alcoholic, he's never far from a drink. And it's only after being dumped by his girlfriend and awakening on a lawn with classmate with Aimee hovering over him, that he considers he may have a problem. Aimee is new and different. She has no boyfriend and reads science fiction. So, while Aimee has dreams of a future, Sutter tries to convince himself that living in the present is the way. Their conflicting approaches draw them together.
