Plot

"A" is a traveling spirit who wakes up in the body of a different male or female teenager, every day. One day, "A" wakes up in the body of Justin, the neglectful boyfriend of Rhiannon. At school that day, Rhiannon approaches "A", in the form of Justin, and she convinces them to skip school with her. As the day goes on, "A" finds themself falling in love with Rhiannon, as she confides to Justin her troubled home life, following her dad"?s mental breakdown that almost resulted in her family losing their home. Rhiannon, in return, feels a rekindled love for Justin, seeing as he has seemingly changed into a more thoughtful and caring person than he was before. The next day, however, Rhiannon finds that Justin has reverted back to his old, careless self, and doesn't even remember the day before. Meanwhile, waking up in the body of Amy, "A" masquerades as an exchange student in order to be close with Rhiannon.

The next day, "A" wakes up in the body of devout catholic Nathan, and attends a party "A" is aware Rhiannon will also be attending. Connecting with her through dance, "A" and Rhiannon bond as Nathan tells Rhiannon that she deserves better then Justin, before "A", as Nathan, is chased off by Justin. A few days later, "A" texts Rhiannon, asking that she meet them alone, and she does, under the assumption that she is meeting Nathan. However, "A" shows up as Megan, disclosing to Rhiannon that "A" was Justin and Amy and Nathan and that "A" is falling in love with her. Although disdained at first, Rhiannon agrees to meet with "A" the next day, with "A" now in the body of James. "A" tells Rhiannon that "A" has been shifting bodies every day since "A" was a baby. "A" discloses that "A" now keeps a private instagram account with pictures taken every day in every body "A" is in, and that Rhiannon can communicate with "A" through that account. Meeting with Nathan, who believes he was possessed by the devil, Rhiannon realizes that "A" is real. The next day, "A", in the body of nonbinary Vic, convinces Rhiannon to give "A" a chance, despite the fact that "A" shifts forms every day, explaining to her that it is the soul that counts, not the body.

Some day later, "A" gleefully awakens in the body of Rhiannon herself. Over the course of the day, "A" bonds with Rhiannon"?s mom as well as her sister and father. The next day, Rhiannon breaks up with Justin, having finally found the courage to do so. Waking up in the body of the suicidal and depressed Kelsea, Rhiannon convinces "A" to attempt to hold onto Kelsea"?s body for longer then twenty-four hours, in order to keep Kelsea alive until Kelsea"?s father returns from his trip, so he can be alerted of Kelsea"?s illness. When "A" is successful, Rhiannon soon convinces them, in the body of one of her friends, Alexander, to stay in Alexander"?s body, so they can be together whenever. For a short time, this seems to work, but soon, "A" realizes that they cannot just take somebody else"?s life away from them. Inviting Rhiannon over to Alexander"?s house, "A", in the body of Alexander, tells Rhiannon that they cannot realistically be together forever, and that Alexander himself is perfect for Rhiannon. Sharing one last night together, Rhiannon and "A" kiss goodbye. The next day, "A" awakens in a different body and drives away, while Rhiannon meets up with Alexander at school, and they walk away together.
