In this gentle comedy, Devon (Devon Morf) is the leader of a punk rock band and lives in a grungy co-op apartment in San Francisco. He has run afoul of the perfidious "Lisa Theory," which maintains that any girl named Lisa is bound to create trouble. In his case, a girl named Lisa (Honey O. Yates) came into his life, changed the focus of his co-op from anarchy to socialism, got things neat and organized, and promptly walked back out of it again. Now he is in a state of some dispair, as he fancies himself still in love with her. He is chivvied out of his slump by his roommate (Avel Sosa II), an engaging young man with more romantic irons in the fire than he quite knows what to do with. Eventually Devon meets up with Lisa again and confirms that she really intends to stay out of his life. Somehow, seeing her this time makes that okay with him, and he can now get on with things.
