Whether it's happiness, peace, confidence, or perhaps a new car or a better house, everyone is searching for something. We all want something that we're missing that we've always longed to find.

Four characters take a journey to find what it is they're missing. For Ella, the good girl, she's always wanted to be content with herself. Garrett, the rich, but not shallow guy, has never been truly happy with life. Kim, the popular Cheerleader, has never found the right boyfriend. And Matthew, the smart Asian, has always wanted to find a place to fit in.

Follow the lives of these four ordinary people as they find the key to living life to the fullest.
