Fay is 15 and totally frustrated for she is always just average: her outfit is boring, her party life just about non-existent and she hasn't a clue what she really wants. And so she works out a 16-point plan with the help of which everything has to have changed by her 16th birthday. So as to be better motivated, she programmes an app to check her progress. The only trouble is, she has allowed a tiny error to creep in: before long the app starts doing things of its own accord and as a sideline begins to look for the perfect boy for her. As soon as he appears on the scene her mobile beeps, but Fay is anything but pleased with the app's choice.
