Bookish and newly single Jesse Fisher is a university admissions counselor in his mid-thirties living in NYC who returns to his Ohio alma mater for a retirement dinner honoring his favorite English professor.
A chance meeting on campus with 19-year-old Zibby - a precocious undergrad who loves classical music, improv and Twilight - awakens in Jesse long-dormant feelings of possibility and connection. The pair strikes up a long-distance epistolary romance, prompting Jesse to return to campus for another visit. Although Zibby appears beyond her years, the age-difference between the budding paramours weights heavily on Jesse, who is torn between moving forward in life, and holding on to the indelible memories of his own university years.
