Love, friendship, fraud and the stories we tell…
Frank only wanted three things this year— to perform stand-up comedy, go to therapy, and to keep his house plants alive.
Then Giorgio got hit by a bus.
As Frank moves in with Giorgio to help him recover, he begins to suspect that the perfect life Giorgio has been sharing online may be nothing more than a web of lies and scams. Finding himself unable to break free from his friend’s complicated life, has Frank become Giorgio’s unwitting accomplice?
