An ambitious portrait of an unnamed woman who craves love and a fantastic life, but finds life is mocking her instead. We witness the woman being scolded at her local gym, having sex after vomiting expensive tuna, witnessing a seizure in a movie theatre.

Throughout this narrative, she forces us to contend with the imagined spaces that so often breed discomfort in our daily lives.
