Lucy is a 32-year-old woman living in Los Angeles with her best fri­end Jane and working as a recep­tio­nist at a spa. She finds litt­le satis­fac­tion in her roman­tic life, inclu­ding with her fri­end Ben, who beco­mes frus­tra­ted at her con­tin­ued avo­id­ance of his advan­ces. Jane recei­ves a work pro­mo­ti­on that will requi­re her to relo­ca­te to London, and goes out for drinks with Lucy and Jane’s boy­fri­end Danny to cele­bra­te. After Jane con­fes­ses to kis­sing a fema­le fri­end as a teen­ager, Lucy drun­ken­ly tells her that she thinks she might be a les­bi­an. Jane encou­ra­ges her to explo­re her fee­lings, sug­gest­ing that Lucy should pur­sue her flir­ta­tious mas­sa­ge the­ra­pist co-worker Brittany.

Lucy invi­tes Brittany to her house for din­ner, but recei­ves mixed signals as Brittany shares about her ex-boy­fri­end, but also decla­res her sexua­li­ty to be „on the spec­trum” and kis­ses her befo­re lea­ving. Jane brings Lucy to a les­bi­an bar, but Lucy is shy and soon lea­ves after see­ing Jane kis­sing other women on the dance flo­or; the two fight and stop spea­king. Lucy meets up with Brittany again. The two have sex, but Brittany quick­ly lea­ves the fol­lo­wing mor­ning and beco­mes distant, later recon­ci­ling with her ex-boy­fri­end. Meanwhile, Jane deals with the pres­su­res of her upco­ming move, inclu­ding her self-absor­bed co-worker Kat and Danny’s con­fes­si­on that he does not want to join Jane in London as she assu­med he would.

Lucy quits her job to return to her pas­si­on of pain­ting, and beg­ins mee­ting other women on dating apps. She comes out to Ben, and the two recon­ci­le as fri­ends. After going on a „ham­mock retre­at” with Kat, Jane makes up with Lucy, exci­ted­ly offe­ring sup­port for the chan­ges in her life. Lucy offers to dri­ve Jane to the air­port as she heads to London, only to reve­al that she will be joi­ning her on the trip to help ease her transition.
