The actress plays Min, a high school sophomore who enjoys hanging out with friends at their favorite coffee shop. She falls for Ed, a senior and captain of the basketball team, and gets caught up in their roller coaster romance. The story unfolds a few weeks after their break-up, when she drops off a letter and a box of mementos on his porch.
No production schedule was given for Why We Broke Up.
