Din Swift lives a life of quiet desperation. A mundane job, an abysmal wage, and a one-way road to nowhere permeating his everyday life. All this leaves him and his even more infuriated best friend, Chris, wondering how and why they came to find themselves in this world of an increasingly disposable workforce. A time far different from the “American Dream” they were brought up to know, and a vision that older generations have enjoyed considerably more. They dare to question all this and more.
What Din is not so inclined to share is that he has already quit his job, yet does not have the nerve to tell anyone. Be it a newfound courage or a crazed second wind, Din decides to fix everything by finding a new job and thereby hoist himself out of this rut. In painful and even comical fashion, Din discovers the process of interviewing to be a full-time job in and of itself, and soon realizes why he was so reluctant to resign to begin with. It takes an agonizing twist of fate to reevaluate everything about himself, as well as everyone around him.
Follow his journey as he navigates catastrophic romances, the testing of friendships, and ultimately comes to question if the modern America he lives in, both economically and culturally, may really be within an irreversible era of decline.
