Anna loves movies. If her life were a movie and she wrote the script, she wouldn’t be living with her reserved parents in rural Pennsylvania. And she wouldn’t have to face her pregnant sister who just moved back home after being gone for three years. Feeling stuck, all Anna wants to do is disappear into her TV screen. But when Anna strikes up a friendship with Aiden, a cashier at one of the last remaining video stores in the state, she finds unexpected acceptance in his virtual film club. Anna knows happy endings are for the movies, but maybe she can find her own.
