Nelson, an ambitious recent graduate living in New York City, struggles to cope with his two dysfunctional roommates while attempting an impossible job search during the Covid-19 pandemic.
Nelson, a an ambitious recent graduate works on his resume in hopes of finding a job during the Covid 19 pandemic. His roommates Corey and Tyler are uninterested in his job search instead focused on more immature pursuits. One day, Nelson gets an interview at a 3D animation studio but the zoom call is interrupted by his roommates antics. Nelson starts posting rejection emails on his bedroom wall. He explains to Corey that his dad always told him "every no gets you closer to a yes," but then asserts his "father did not graduate in the middle of a pandemic with student loans." Finally, Nelson returns from his food delivery gig one night to find Corey watching the news and Tyler cleaning his bong in the sink. Tyler asks his roommates if they want shots and bong rips. Corey and Nelson agree and Tyler gives a toast to "getting through this pandemic shit together." Nelson consciousness fades while watching Andrew Cuomo on the TV. When Nelson regains consciousness he is laughing on the floor while Corey giggles in a chair and Tyler strums electric guitar chords. Nelson asks if they have been drugged and Tyler refuses to answer. Nelson tackles Tyler and a fight ensues. The fight ends when Tyler explains that his roommates have been "so pent up they have forgotten how to have a good time." Tyler jumps in the chair with Corey and gives him a kiss on the cheek. Nelson calls them both assholes before being beckoned over to join the group hug.
