Synopsis: Some glasses of rosé, a ball drop, and an intimate, uh... sleepover. For most people, that would be the end of that—but not for Sean and Cody. Their one-night extravaganza is kept alive through social media, technology, their ebbing connection, and a shared love of Maggie Rogers. Perhaps this time in their life is just a stepping stone, or will lead them to something else?
