Milla Finlay (Eliza Scanlen) is suffering from a terminal illness and is about to start chemo. On the other hand, Moses (Toby Wallace) has been kicked out of the house. Both Milla and Moses meet at the train platform and become friends.
Milla's parents, Henry is a therapist and Anna (Essie Davis) takes drugs to cope with her daughter's illness. Milla brings Moses home to meet her parents. Anna admits to being put off by Moses being 23 while Milla is still a teen.
Milla takes violin lessons from her tutor Gidon (Eugene Gilfedder). He helps her practice along with a neighbor boy named Tin Wah (Edward Lau). Meanwhile, Henry goes to see the fuss over a barking dog and a pregnant neighbor, Toby (Emily Barclay). They share a laugh after learning that Toby's dog is also named Henry.
One night, Moses breaks into Milla's house to look for food and other things. Anna catches him and calmly tries to talk him down, but Henry and Milla come in and witness the scene. Milla steps in to diffuse the situation and suggests that Moses stay for breakfast since it's almost morning. Henry and Anna agree and have breakfast with Moses before Milla gets ready for school by unveiling her new wig, which Moses really likes.
Moses visits Milla later. Milla sits by the pool while Moses swims for a little. She asks him to the formal and he accepts, but the moment is ruined when Milla starts to feel like she's going to vomit. Milla asks Anna for the drugs, but Moses reveals he swiped them. Anna makes him leave, and Milla asks Moses if he only hangs out with her for the drugs and if he is making fun of her. He nods yes to the drugs but shakes his head for the second part.
