The everyday adventures of a small-town girl who leaves home for an urban centre and experiences both the pangs and joys of her new independence. Exposed to noise, neon, and the coldness of city dwellers, Mary-Frances acquires both sophistication and an awareness that she is not the only one who sometimes feels lonely and overwhelmed. An often amusing look at the problems of urban migration.
