Agnes' recent break-up has landed her in the hospital with cuts on her wrists while Cecilia's love of music has fueled trading her self-respect for warm bed or paying gig. Lucy's "It Girl" status has her bold-faced name appearing regularly in the tabloids, but her superficial lifestyle only makes her feel more empty and alone. Their paths cross one night when they end up in the same hospital and each wake up with a token from Sebastian, a mysterious boy they've only just met. As they become wrapped up in finding out just who Sebastian is, they each discover their own strengths, and realize the only way to save themselves is to save each other.
