SynopsisA woman, Claire, browsing in a library, slowly realizes that the young woman, Shelby, next to her has been following her around town for several days. Claire tries to find out what Shelby's motive is, and it is revealed that Claire is in fact addicted to the library, as she searches books for random scraps of knowledge that will explain her life to her. Shelby is also looking for guidance and help after being sexually assaulted. The women take a journey together through the random snippets they read in the library, and form an odd bond.
