Twenty-one-year-old Anastasia “Ana” Steele is an English literature major at Washington State University’s (“WSU”) satellite campus near Vancouver, Washington. When her roommate, Kate Kavanagh, becomes ill and is unable to interview Christian Grey, a 27-year-old billionaire entrepreneur, for the college newspaper, Ana agrees to go in her place. At Christian’s Seattle headquarters called Grey House, Ana stumbles her way through the meeting. Christian, who is that year’s WSU commencement speaker, takes an interest in her; soon after, he visits the hardware store where Ana works. He agrees to Ana’s request for a photo shoot to accompany the article for which Ana had interviewed him.
Christian invites Ana for coffee, but he leaves abruptly, saying he is not the man for her. Christian later sends Ana first edition copies of two Thomas Hardynovels, including Tess of the d’Urbervilles, as a gift.
Ana and her friends celebrate graduation at a local bar. After drinking too much, Ana spontaneously calls Christian, saying she is returning the books and berates his behavior towards her. Christian goes to the bar and finds Ana, who passes out. She wakes up the next morning in Christian’s hotel room, relieved that they were not intimate.
