Jamie (Erin Fisher) arrives in New York City looking for a friend, who isn't answering her cell phone. Missing her stop on the subway, she asks Charlie (Cris Lankenau) for directions. Unable to articulate them properly, he escorts her to a diner where she is supposed to meet her friend but the friend never shows. Charlie invites Jamie back to his apartment, which kick starts a 24 hour period of hanging out and getting to know each other.
