Synopsis: April and Will, two friendly acquaintances who met at their political campaign job agree to go to a party together that April must attend. They both hate their current employment positions with the campaign, they have high aspirations to earn better careers and to be someone of importance, and they share an instant attraction with one another that can’t be acted upon because of their current relationships with other people. Once arriving at the party they walk away from crowd in order to share a more intimate conversation with one another. During their talk Will reveals to April that he is going to propose to his girlfriend, Emily, when she arrives on her first visit to see him. This leads him to practicing his proposal to Emily on April, who has much input on this topic, and is secretly envious of Emily for having such a great guy in her life.

Character Analysis:

Will: is a hard-working, starry-eyed aspiring politician fresh out of college who moves far away from his college sweetheart, Emily, to a big city to work on a current political campaign. He has high hopes of having a job of importance and significance for the campaign, but he is stuck with a job as an errand boy. Aspiring to be so much more in life, he manages to work his way up to the top thanks to his outstanding motivation and devotion to the campaign. Will is very much in love with his girlfriend and misses her dearly, and he plans to propose to her on her first visit to the state that the now works in. In wait of his girlfriend arriving Will becomes lonely and meets a couple of girls whose encounters could quite possibly end his relationship with his beloved Emily. Although he is a morally good guy with the intention of staying faithful to the girl he loves, he is easily persuaded by convenient temptations that come his way. Will graduated at the top of his class, is highly intelligent, social, goal oriented, and he lives in the moment by following his instinct. Being the great guy that he is, Will realizes his mistakes and ultimately sticks with his plan of marrying the girl who he thinks is of his dreams.

April: is one of Will’s love interests who he meets at his political campaign job. Like Will, she is only a “copy girl” who makes Xeroxes all day as well as a part-time babysitter, and though confused on how to know what to do with her life, she aspires to be so much more than she currently is. She is very quirky, eccentric, and has a genuine feel to her. She is very outspoken and is not afraid to speak her mind. She is currently dating a bum of a guy who aspires to be the next Kurt Cobain, and is secretly and desperately searching for a guy who will sweep her off her feet and treat her right. She and Will become very close friends who have that certain chemistry that allows them to talk about everything, including things that they don’t talk to anyone else about. No matter how close they get, she can never seem to pull the trigger as far as being together goes, seeing as how Will has a girlfriend who he plans to propose to. She is very likeable and honest with her feelings. Although she does not have many sources of encouragement, Will seems to give her the only motivation that she takes to heart.
