Nick and Meg are high school sweethearts, but the night before Meg leaves for college they have a huge fight about trying a long-distance relationship. Nick comes to the train station to find Meg and see if he can fix things. While he waits for her to arrive, he imagines all of the different ways their conversation could go. The various people in the station act out what Nick is imagining as he tries to find the right words to save their relationship.
