A punk-infused drama centring on the turbulent reunion between two disparate women who were once teenage lovers. Gloria and Frances first met when they were both patients in the same psychiatric hospital back in the 1980s, and decided to run away together. At the time their love affair was defined by youthful intensity. Over 20 years later their lives have taken very different paths, with nomadic Gloria spending most of her time drifting between record shops and bars, while Frances enjoys success as a TV personality. Can they rekindle their affair?
