A bleak reality introduces us to six characters yearning to be seen and heard. Janet aka The Janet J, a wannabe Instagram star, seeks identity in others’ approval, while her boyfriend Sam remains unable to face his fears and perform as a stand-up comedian. Tom, a Russian Cowboy obsessed with Jeff Goldblum, desperately wants to fulfill his image of the American Dream. Daniel, a self-help tape maker, has never been able to help himself, and Marty, a victimizing caretaker, uses her profession to gain attention and the help she incapable of asking for. And Jo, a desert dwelling woman with multiple personas, stealing the identities of others to avoid her inability to be vulnerable. These humans collide in hopes of connection, and in the process create a world of disillusion.
