Rebecca Bunch is a single woman who still longs for her longtime soul mate Josh, who dumped her after their summer fling during summer camp in 2005. In 2015, after being inspired by a TV commercial for a butter spread, she restarts her pursuit of Josh after she spots him in New York City. When he tells her that he is moving to West Covina, California ("Just two hours from the beach, four hours in traffic"), Rebecca decides to move there too, hoping that it will give her a fresh start and bring her closer to Josh. Rebecca is hired by Darryl Whitefeather as a partner at his West Covina law firm, buys herself a house, and washes her pills down the sink. She quickly becomes friends with her co-worker Paula and apathetic neighbor Heather, while forming a complicated on-again-off-again relationship with Josh's friend Greg.
