Welcome to Almost, Maine, a town that’s so far north, it’s almost in Canada. And it
almost doesn’t exist. Because its residents never got around to getting organized.
So it’s just…Almost. One cold, clear Friday night in the middle of winter, while
the northern lights hover in the sky above, Almost’s residents find themselves falling
in and out of love in the strangest ways. Knees are bruised. Hearts are broken. Love
is lost, found, and confounded. And life for the people of Almost, Maine will never
be the same. It’s love. But not quite.
