After a messy breakup, Adrienne’s friends force her into a night on the town to forget her problems when they decide that two weeks of isolation is enough. Unable to continue the routine of partying to numb her pain, Adrienne leaves the nightclub and heads home in the cold, dark night. A friend catches up to her and confronts her about her weird behavior, getting her to open up about her recent lack of confidence. Once all the feelings are out in the open, the two make a plan to create a happier future for Adrienne.
