This movie follows the story of a shy, straight-A student named Ellie Chiu (Leah Lewis) who feels isolated and friendless in her remote town of Squahamish, where she makes much-needed extra cash penning homework papers for her fellow high school students. Ellie reluctantly agrees to help inarticulate school jock Paul Munsky (Daniel Diemer) write love letters to Aster Flores (Alexxis Lemire). Ellie and Paul’s unlikely friendship gets complicated when Ellie discovers she has feelings for the same girl.
As all three embark on an unexpected journey of discovery, they form an intricate triangle of friendship as they come to terms with their own unexpected feelings about love.
