Frances is the epitome of joy of life and subsequently a walking contradiction. She lives in New York, but she doesn’t have her own apartment. She is a dancer, but she doesn’t work as such. Her best friend is Sophie, but they practically don’t speak to each other. She always aims high in life, even when the world calls for a rude awakening. She wakes up each day with a new idea for her life and jumps with open arms into the unknown, as soon as another of her dreams and plans appears to be impossible to realize.
