May Dove Canady is an awkward, lonely young woman, who suffered from a rough childhood due to her lazy eye.

Her optometrist fixes May’s lazy eye, first with glasses, then with contact lens. May becomes friends with Adam, a local mechanic. She has a fixation on his hands, which she considers to be the most attractive part of him, and they start dating. May’s lesbian colleague Polly begins to flirt with May. One day, May remarks that Polly has a beautiful neck. They become friends and Polly gives her pet cat Lupe to May. The F/F couple shown below is formed by May and Polly, who are portrayed by Angella Bettis and Anna Faris.
