The Seattle music scene is the backdrop for this tale of single twentysomethings trying to find themselves and each other in the 1990s. Linda (Kyra Sedgwick) and Steve (Campbell Scott) meet in a club and begin to play the dating game. Janet (Bridget Fonda) has a thing for Cliff (Matt Dillon), who barely acknowledges her existence.

Highlights include live performances by Alice in Chains and Soundgarden, as well as cameos by the members of Pearl Jam.
