Synopsis

After graduating from college, Marnie (Kate Dollenmayer) is living in Boston. Looking for temporary work while trying to figure out what it is she wants to do, Marnie grapples with her feelings toward her good friend Alex (Christian Rudder), who doesn't seem to feel the same way about her. As she attempts to mature while surviving her dreary desk job, Marnie meets Mitchell (Andrew Bujalski), a shy, neurotic coworker who helps her better understand herself. (eventful.com)
