Campbell (Eion Bailey), Nell (Jennifer Garner), Henry (Scott Bairstow), Ben (Michael Weatherly) and Jane (Elizabeth Mitchell) are at a point in their lives where every decision, whether it is whimsical or planned, counts, and the choices they make about relationships and business will set the course for the rest of their lives.
Though linked by years of friendship, Campbell, Nell and Henry couldn't be more different in their approach to adult life. Campbell is the dreamer, the one who bounces from one scheme to the next; Nell fears commitment in all aspects of her life; and Henry is a writer who, after tasting the spoils of success in the past, craves it even more, but until inspiration kicks in, makes his living writing porn for a website. Their relationship is challenged and their future bond put to the test when Campbell discovers that Nell and Henry, the two people he thought he knew better than anyone else in his life, have been secretly seeing each other.
Campbell also has to contend with Ben, his older brother, who is trying to repair his reputation as a ladies' man by settling down with Jane, Campbell's ex-girifriend. Rounding out the cast of series regulars is Henry's boss Charlotte (Gigi Rice).
