Katherine’s grandmother dies on New Years Eve, and the year 2000 isn’t looking so great. She finds solace in Toronto’s underground music scene and Marie. The two girls explore their relationship and if it might mean more.
The year 2000 isn’t starting out too well for Toronto high school senior Katherine Boatman. Not only has her oldest friend ditched her for yet another boyfriend, her beloved grandmother died on New Year’s Eve, leaving a void of goodness in her life that Katherine’s not sure how to fill.
While overwhelmed with sadness and self-doubt, Katherine unexpectedly finds new love, both for Toronto’s underground music scene and for her would-be savior: a straight-edge, loudmouthed misfit named Marie.
As Katherine seeks comfort in jagged guitars, mind-reading poets and honest conversations, she struggles to figure out not only what she and Marie might mean to each other, but also what it truly means to be good.
