Kevin Wolfe is a socially awkward photographer who takes headshots for aspiring models and actresses. He asks them out for dinner or a movie. Most say no to him or are no shows at the date. Beautiful Adrienne surprises him and asks him out. After the date they have sex and the next morning he takes a single picture of her sleeping. Kevin wants a second date but she has no interest. She ignores his many text messages but does meet him for lunch to pick up her photos. She makes sure he knows there will be no relationship. Kevin uses Adrienne's photo for promotion purposes.
