An asocial young woman. Her only friends, her dying father and one (apparently) long time (mostly) platonic girlfriend. Filled with social anxieties and disgusted by most physical contact, she gradually tries to push herself into “normal” behaviors which she only understands intellectually. And tentatively, at that. Her explorations of physical intimacy are awkward in the extreme; both hysterically funny and endearingly honest.
Her relationships with her father and friend are very particular to themselves and may strike the viewer as odd. (Though I found myself identifying rather similar relationships in my own life.) These relationships seem to be very fulfilling for her, though and you worry about what will happen once her father dies and she loses such a crucial part of her life.
