Meet Arthur and Ben.
ARTHUR is only in New York for the summer, but if Broadway has taught him anything, it’s that the universe can deliver a showstopping romance when you least expect it.
BEN thinks the universe needs to mind its business. If the universe had his back, he wouldn’t be carrying a box of his ex-boyfriend’s things.
But when the boys have a chance meeting at the post office, they leave wondering what exactly the universe does have in store for them.
What if - in a city of eight million people - they can't find each other again?
What if they do ... and then can’t nail a first date even after three do-overs?
What if Arthur tries too hard to make it work and Ben doesn’t try hard enough?
What if life really isn’t like a Broadway play?
But what if it is?
