Four collegiate comedians and one magnetic movie star venture to live their lives according to the ‘yes and’ rules of improvisation. Set in a rural ivy league campus, New York City and the beaches of Long Island, the five of them grapple with addiction, anxiety disorders, love, and fleeting fame. Challenging the average college comedy, this quirky, contemplative film asks, can you live life by the rules that govern your art? For those who’ve pursued an unconventional life realizing we are simply the sum of the people who fascinate us, it’s comedy, taken seriously.
