What do we do when obsession grabs us between the legs and pulls? Go with it? Resist it? Do we let it dictate our friendships? Our relationships? Does it simply make us too stupid to even notice our choices?
In his twenty-something years on earth, Avery Ward has had limited success with his dating relationships. As a student in psychology and a counselor-in-training, he feels it is important to analyze the mistakes of his past before embarking on those same mistakes in the future. So, when his psychology professor asks him to chart his obsessions throughout the semester, he doesn't think he'll have much to write about. He is, after all, cautious about his choices, and cautious people do not submit to obsessions.
That is, until he meets Melissa, the girl of his dreams, at a fraternity party one fateful night.
He has sixty seconds with her. That's all. But that's enough to figure out that she is everything he wants. When her cellphone rings and she goes missing for the evening, he panics. He longs to spend more time with her. He searches all over for her. Where is she? He must find her. Can he find her? He panics. She is the woman of his dreams. Sixty seconds. He needs more.
Fortunately, serendipity kicks in when he runs into her at a local supermarket, giving him a second chance at a new first impression. But, he has needy friends, and a cellphone, and so does Melissa, and even as he tries his hardest to kickstart the relationship that he failed to launch at the party, friends and cellphones become obsessed with both of them, and getting the girl of his dreams may require choices that go beyond simple obsession.
