Boy meets girl. Girl meets boy. The two become friends, and slowly then all at once it becomes something more. Classic tale.
But this time it comes with a twist - all we get to see are the messages that Cat and Michael share over the two weeks that take them from friends to more-than. Told primarily through the messages left by Cat on Michael's answering machine, this story is about two college students trying to navigate an age-old transition.
