Twenty-eight-year-old Lucy is at a point in her life when everything is spinning out of control. Despite her degree in fine arts, she is working as a professional gofer for an unbearable art galley owner; her free-spirited grandfather has just passed away, leaving behind his pregnant girlfriend; and she is the only sane member in her eccentric family. But Lucy's road to happiness soon begins as she takes up residence at her grandfather's launderette, reconditions it and starts painting again. And she finds a good guy after all.
