After a naive Midwestern girl's big city dreams are dashed in her first week in New York, she finds herself living with her worst nightmare in this contemporary comedy about a female odd couple who are surrounded by an outrageous cast of characters.
June (Dreama Walker) moves to Manhattan for a dream job and the perfect company apartment, only to have them disappear in a puff of reality, thanks to a CEO from the Bernie Madoff school of embezzlement.
Deep in debt and out on the streets, June scrambles to land a job and place to live. It seems her luck has turned around when she gets hired at a coffee shop and finds Chloe (Krysten Ritter), a charming, vivacious roommate... with the morals of a pirate.
She swindles June out of all her savings, but she and her snarky friend, James Van Der Beek (playing himself), soon learn that, just because June's naive, she isn't stupid.
June ingeniously turns the tables on Chloe, who is so shocked about being scammed herself that she decides to pull June into her colourful band of friends. Sure, it's all dysfunctional, bizarre and overwhelming, but so is New York City.
And with the help of Chloe and the other oddballs around her, June might just learn the survival secrets she needs to make it there.
