Missed Connections is a queer romantic comedy that follows Avery, an introverted grammar nerd, who gives her students an assignment to write love stories inspired by the missed connections ads in the local paper. But when one of them details Avery's own chance encounter with her neighborhood crush, she is uncharacteristically emboldened to take a chance on love. The problem? The ad was printed before they met. When more ads start predicting the future everyone's lives are thrown into upheaval.
