Inspired by true events, Being Here follows the life of Charlie, a young woman in her late 20s, as her three months in a drug and alcohol rehabilitation facility are coming to a close. In fear of leaving her newfound safety bubble, Charlie resists moving on from rehab — defaulting to all of her unhealthy coping mechanisms that brought here there in the first place.

Laura is a young librarian/nightclub singer trying to navigate the endless complexities of love, lust, and dating in contemporary New York. In a fractured kaleidoscope of genre and emotion, we watch seven of Laura’s romances play out in a series of interwoven vignettes – with each of her lovers laying claim to a very specific cinematic style. From glamorous black-and-white musical to gritty documentary, from crude animation to rapid-cutting montage, Laura's lovers take her on a journey of joy, pain, and self-discovery – and it all builds up to one defining choice.
