A lesbian teen in Toronto (Emily Alatalo) is accepted to three colleges but can't decide which to attend; when her brother announces that he's engaged, she begins to worry that she'll make the wrong choice and miss meeting her soul mate. Writer-director Heather Tobin follows her protagonist through three interminable episodes that show her possible future paths (one for each school, I presume). Will she get pregnant in college and face the prospect of an abortion? Marry a much older woman? Inadvertently (and bizarrely) steal her brother's fiancee? Spoiler alert: after lumbering through these half-baked scenarios, Tobin resolves that the girl will skip college and opt instead to travel with her mother, a minor character up to that point.
