In Denver, twenty-something Ana belongs to a six person improvisation group, the Iron Pyrits. Ana likes her fellow members and in many ways nurtures the others. She especially suffers from the unrequitedly love of Jason of who she met six years ago in college, but also considers Scott as a possible suitor. Ana worries about her best friend and all around nice gal Maren, who gets herself into too many abusive relationships. She tells Chelsey (the only member not a roommate) that an interracial relationship is fine if love is the common denominator. Finally, there is Ramiro who has dad troubles so he needs a little mothering without his knowing it. This is her family, but each has decisions to make involving their future that could break up the group and end their friendships.

Though the story is told mostly from the perspective of Ana, the other five key players come across as real people also. The sensitivities of Ana and the uniqueness of each member of the group as she perceives them make for a solid character study with overtones of a family drama and chick lit tale.
