Dealing with her recent breakup, Jenna is brought to the club by her two best friends, Ayo and Tiff. During their night out, Jenna discovers a picture of ex-boyfriend dancing with someone on social media. Because of this, Ayo and Tiff convince her to strategically post a picture in an attempt to “win” at post-breakup life. Whether “winning” means getting the attention of your ex or making it clear you’re happy being single, Jenna proves it’s not easy getting over a breakup.
