The people that surround her, all have plans and know what they want, among them her boyfriend Mats, who occasionally approaches her for comfort and sex while being stressed out about his bachelor’s degree. Ella sleeps with him even though she doesn’t really want to and deep inside longs for something else.
When she forgets the deadline for college applications, she panics. Mats insists that she and her friend Susanne should come with him to India the coming fall, and for lack of better plans, she agrees. At the same time, she gets a new coworker named Simen, who seems to awaken all of her inner desires and causes her to fall madly in love.
