Frances, a 27-year old dancer, who struggling to stay afloat after her roommate leaves their Brooklyn apartment, must try to find a place for herself, both literally and metaphorically. How long can Frances linger in the fun but awkward transition between a student lifestyle and adult responsibilities? „Frances Ha“ - a fastpaced homage to the French New Wave, a love poem to New York City, and a delightful personal portrait.
