At the party, he meets the autistic girl Lola (Vanessa Burghardt) and her mother Domino (Dakota Johnson). Andrew then forms an unlikely friendship with Lola and her mother. Andrew’s friendship with Lola shows him a future he hadn’t imagined for himself but now desperately wants.

The official synopsis reads: “Fresh out of college and with no clear life path in the future, 22-year-old Andrew is stuck at home with his family in New Jersey. But if there’s one thing that belongs on his non-existent resume, it’s how to start a party, which lands him the perfect job of uplifting bar dancing and bat mitzvahs for his younger brother’s classmates. When Andrew befriends a local mother, Domino, and her daughter, Lola, he finally discovers the future he wants, even if it’s not his own.”

“Cooper Raiff writes, directs and stars alongside Dakota Johnson, Brad Garrett, Leslie Mann and newcomers Vanessa Burghardt and Evan Assante in this offbeat love story brimming with emotional honesty.”
