Carol Mulroney stands on her roof, watching the sparkling lights of the city below. Her rooftop is her hideaway, her haven, her solace from the chaotic world below. But the roof is being overrun by the inevitable messiness of life and the people in it. Over the fragmented course of a day, Carol will stay on her roof and seek to make connections with those to whom she is closest—her husband, her best friend, her father and someone new. In each encounter she will try to make sense of who she is in relation to these insane, loving, unintentionally hurtful people. She will look for value in the chaos and meaning in the hope, refusing to give in to falseness or a second-rate way of living. And in the end she will find connection on her own defiant terms.
