How does a beautiful, young party girl, who has never been denied a luxury, approach life after educational testing has shown her to have a higher than average IQ, but daily choices have confirmed her astounding lack of common sense? Meet Alley, a clueless genius who still lives as carefree as a university freshman until a life threatening event forces her to deal with the lurid events of her past and present. Alley traces her current perils of loneliness and illness to a string of misadventures that began in college. Enter Gigi, an attractive young woman from a humble background intent on using her brain to escape poverty. As both confidant and voice of reason, Gigi uses every moment she has with Alley as a time to reeducate her on living up to her potential while challenging her to learn from her mistakes instead of repeating them. Gigi's request that Alley conform to social standards falls on deaf ears as does Alley's attempts to get her friend to loosen up and enjoy life. Together, they embark on a rhythmic journey down memory lane filled with laughter, passion and friendship on Alley's pursuit of "the one that got away," if given one more chance.
