A dark comedy which explores the modern digital culture of social media, reality TV, and our innate search for meaning.
In this world premiere of Kristin Goodman’s dark comedy; Brooke Haven (a cunning social media influencer mom – played by Robyn Rikoon), wrangles her younger sister, Chelsea Haven (an unemployed alcoholic – played by Alexandra Renzo), into starring in a reality television show based on their childhood. As their TV show gains success, the two sisters are forced to confront not only the shared trauma of their public past, but also their current “private” struggle to find human connection and meaning in a world that no longer seems to be real.
