-In this comedy drama, Aura (Lena Dunham) has just graduated from a university in the Midwest, receiving a degree in film theory that even she seems to realize is essentially worthless.

-With no real prospects she returns home to her mother, Siri (Laurie Simmons), a successful photographer living in New York City and her 17-year-old sister, Nadine (Grace Dunham), who is about to graduate from high school. Aura is ostensibly back home to help Siri and Nadine during a hectic time, but they don’t appear to particularly need or want her assistance.

-Aura is directionless and wonders where to go next in her career and her life, so she takes a job in a restaurant and tries unsuccessfully to develop relationships with men, including Keith (David Call), a chef where she works, and cult Internet star Jed (Alex Karpovsky).
