Vic (Emily Morrison), a 30-something sister of Free (Mary Vreeland), is twice divorced, enjoys the "party-girl" lifestyle yet also yearns to be in a relationship. Free, who is deaf, is involved in a loving, long term relationship with Maggie (Cathleen Riddley), an English Lit professor. Into this triangle enters Ram (Janak Ramachandran), a Sanskrit professor from the East Coast, who is in the area on a short visit. After a chance encounter, Vic and Ram become connected, and spend a passionate week together that Ram attempts to forget. When he returns to the East Coast, he receives an intriguing text message from Free, but thinking that the message is actually from Vic, an erotic and sensual text relationship begins to develop between the two. Free's text romance with Ram soon affects her relationship with Maggie - and Vic gets caught in the middle as the somewhat innocent object of Ram's attention.
