Kira Drake lives in the closet to protect her skyrocketing movie career. Controlled by her mother and her domineering agent, Kira's love life consists of hidden affairs and short liaisons.
She is miserable until a location shoot takes her to Ocean Beach, California, an idyllic seaside town. Away from her mother and agent, Kira savours her freedom and is charmed by the liberal locals who seem to embrace everyone.
Flynn McFadden, a veterinary student and surfing instructor, quickly catches Kira's eye, and the women fall for each other almost immediately.
But when Kira's mother and agent discover their relationship, a plot is hatched to break them apart. Kira soon realises she must choose between her love for Flynn and the realisation of her dream.
