Kelly Berman leads an organized, orderly, and solitary life.
She has spent her life taking care of others and understands
the importance of keeping a schedule. Kelly keeps herself
busy; she plays cello for the city orchestra, gives cello
lessons, and works at a music store. Coming home one evening,
she is knocked down by a gorgeous man with a pierced ear and

Ren has just moved into Kelly’s apartment building and is her
new neighbor. He is laid back and the lead guitarist for a
local rock band, Loose Threads. Ren is the opposite of Kelly
and he thinks it may do her some good to loosen up a bit. He
is interested in getting to know his new neighbor better and
offers to buy her dinner since he knocked her down.
Kelly cannot find a way out of the invitation and reluctantly
agrees. Ren shows up at her door with dinner and tequila. As
they share their dinner and talk, they begin to realize that
