As 16-year-old Sophie Jones grap­ples with the recent death of her moth­er, phys­i­cal inti­ma­cy with anoth­er per­son becomes the only way for her to feel any­thing. Sophie tries to keep her rela­tion­ships strict­ly for her own empow­er­ment, as a means of dis­trac­tion, but ulti­mate­ly learns that sex­u­al inti­ma­cy is a tem­po­rary salve, while love is last­ing med­i­cine.
