A palm-reading drag queen tells Jenny she’ll never find love, sending her mind reeling back to high school and a match making scheme that went horribly wrong. Young Jenny hopefully filled the bubbles of a scantron envisioning her perfect match. Horrifyingly her perfect match turned out to be the biggest loser in the school. Was this whole “matching system” just a cruel hoax by the popular kids, sitting around in someone’s dad’s hot tub, laughing at the losers as they paired them up? Maybe, but years later she wonders…what if he was her perfect match?
Questions about love, destiny, erasure, and memories collide in this comical and surprisingly touching story of growth, acceptance, and the expansiveness of love.
