Hannah, a recent college graduate, spends a brutally hot Chicago summer falling in and out of love. As she struggles to find personal and professional fulfillment through various relationships with friends and co-workers, she risks leaving destruction in her wake. Working collaboratively with his cast of fellow filmmakers, Joe Swanberg takes a delicate look at friendship, ambition, and the pursuit of happiness.
