Megan Harper is the girl before. All her exes find true love right after dating her. Megan refuses to waste time feeling sorry for herself. Instead, she focuses on pursuing her next fling, directing theater and fulfilling her dream school's acting requirement in the smallest role possible. But her plans quickly crumble when she's cast as Juliet in her high school's production. Then she meets Owen Okita, an aspiring playwright who agrees to help Megan catch the eye of a sexy stagehand in exchange for help writing his new script. Between rehearsals and contending with her divided family, Megan begins to notice Owen and wonders: shouldn't a girl get to star in her own love story?
