Two New York City couples, one straight and the other gay, find their paths intersecting as they navigate the complex world of modern romance. When Stan (Cameron Scoggins) learns that his girlfriend Annie (Sorel Carradine) has put their relationship on hold, he falls into an affair with Marcus (Leroy McClain), a gay man who has repeatedly failed in his attempts to establish an open relationship with boyfriend Aaron (Charlie Barnett). When Aaron catches Marcus and Stan in the afterglow of a midday rendezvous, things get complicated. Meanwhile, following a blind date with a television writer, Annie takes her playful flirtations with lesbian co-worker Mandy (Maria Dizzia) to the next level. But the relationship only prompts Annie to realize just how much she wants Stan back. As the web that ties these people together becomes increasingly tangled, all involved realize that true love never comes easy.
