Warwik (Wyatt Cenac) is a struggling writer who has been toiling away
at the same novel for years. His wife Jennifer (Greta Lee) is a hot
young literary figure, who has just released a new masterpiece. When her
publisher invites the couple to an artists’ salon at his home in
Connecticut, the pair embark on a twisted journey, and David must face
his demons and try to “not be weird” among the waspy salon guests and
competitive artists in attendance.
He encounters a dentist with publishing aspirations, a book critic
full of condescending advice, a fellow writer who may know his wife a
little too well, an old “friend,” and a high powered bipolar literary
agent who just might be able to help him… for a price.
Nominated for the Gamechanger Award and Jury Award for Narrative Feature at the SXSW Film Festival.
