After discovering her on-again, off-again fling has been seeing other people, Devin, a 30-year-old woman, also discovers that not only was she pregnant, but she’s had a miscarriage. Following her OBGYN’s diagnosis, Devin asks, “But how am I supposed to feel?” Not sure how to feel about anything, Devin embarks on a night of drinking that leads to hooking up with her fling and a cathartic confession that helps her emerge from that constant in-between space.
