Jessie is finally about to realize her life-long goal of owning her very own beautiful house, which will lead to a wonderful marriage, kids, and life with her boyfriend of three years, Kevin; but as they re looking at the perfect place, Kevin suddenly gets cold feet.
Nat is passionately, totally in lust with a gorgeous British man who wants her back unfortunately, he's her boss and married. Nat knows their affair can t last, but as long as they re working together, she can t help herself.
Holly is an actress who books jobs semi-regularly but still waits tables to pay the bills, and still has trouble behaving like a functional human around her striking and intelligent neighbor, Sven. She's realizing that she isn t the dewy-faced ingenue anymore and that it's time to grow up and think about what's next.
To top it all off, when the three friends head out to their favorite wine bar, they learn the bar is scheduled to close, effective immediately. In a moment of tipsy brazenness, Nat suggests that the three of them open their own wine bar, an unapologetically girly place for good wine and good friends which leads to a challenge between the three women: though it's January 31st and a weird time to make a resolution, why wait until next year to change your life? While they re opening the bar, everyone agrees to make one major change in her life...which proves much easier to drink to than to stick to.
