Andrea is a disillusioned, in the closet, New Zealand woman in New York, fed up with society. When a psychiatrist tells her she needs to realise there are good people around to feel happy, she sets on a surreal and quirky mission to find decent humans. With her friends Melissa and Joe trying to help, she hangs out with various “do-gooders”, but soon finds they're not as good as they think. When a tragic event occurs to the only person who made her feel good, an old woman with no teeth, Andrea's faith in people plummets to an all-time low. It’s only when she risks her life during a bus accident, that the goodness of people starts to shine, and she realises what she was looking for was staring her in the face all along.
