Megan (Keira Knightley) is an aimless twenty-eight-year-old living in Seattle, Washington who is in a committed relationship with her high school sweetheart and still close with her high school friends. At her friend Allison’s (Ellie Kemper) wedding, her boyfriend unexpectedly proposes. She also sees her father cheating on her mother. Shocked and confused, she flees and runs into teenager Annika (Chloë Grace Moretz) and her friends outside a grocery store. After buying them alcohol, Megan plays with their skateboard. When they ask her to join them on their night out, she does.
Returning home, Megan’s boyfriend suggests that rather than having a big wedding, they elope. Megan agrees, but delays the wedding by pretending she has a week-long career advice seminar to attend.
Megan receives a call from Annika asking her to pretend to be her absentee mother at a guidance counsellor’s meeting. Megan goes to the meeting, then asks Annika if, in return, she can stay at her house.
Annika is unsuccessful at sneaking Megan into her house, where her single-parent lawyer father Craig (Sam Rockwell) questions Megan about her relationship with his daughter. Megan lies that there was a gap between her lease expiring and her move into a new apartment. Craig reluctantly allows her to stay and gradually begins to trust her. Annika asks Megan to drive her to her estranged mother’s house to see her for the first time in years.
Craig asks Megan out for a drink. When they return—having had more drinks than they planned—they end up having sex. The next morning, he offers to let her stay longer than the week she asked for, but she declines.
