In 2017 “Trudeau”-Era Vancouver City, two lower-class Millennials – the rational, nursing student Lauren; and her older, aspiring, musician-boyfriend Cameron – live together in an overly-priced, tiny apartment above a hospital. One night, a poor experience at a restaurant forces them to come back to their dingy-abode earlier than expected, where a casual-evening of sex, pot, and talk turns into a casual-night of drinking, arguing, and reminiscing about the past… a casual-evening for the both of them… until unexpected guests arrive at their place, disrupt their stable existence, and force them to reexamine themselves in the face of an unknown future.

MICHAEL (19-26, Male): A jolly-kid. The type of adolescent that would be the perfect husband, that get’s friend-zoned, that get’s ID’ed at every bar, that is always the third-wheel at hangout’s, and that is the most memorable and talked about when not around.
