Best friends Eric and Morgan have a tradition ever since they’ve been kids – to check in with each other on their shared birthday, even if they are moving apart a little bit. Eric struggles with his relationship with his family, football, and feelings for his friend Morgan, while Morgan struggles with the death of her mother as well as making the decision to live as her true self.
