On New Year's Eve in New York, 1981, Monica is terrified that nobody will come to her party. Even her best friend will only come when bribed with first refusal on Monica's ex-boyfriend Eric, who hasn't even arrived. Eric, meanwhile is a trendy downtown artist, who is at a club with current squeeze Bridget and her pal Caitlyn. But Bridget fancies the cute bartender. Meanwhile, Monica's teenage cousin from Long Island is coming to the party with a friend, but they are lost and terrified somewhere is the East Village. And in a cafe, Lucy and Kevin, terrifed of being alone at midnight, consider turning their friendship into something more.
