Set in Manny's mind, which greatly resembles a closeout furniture store, we follow as he slips in and out of daydreams, memories, and reality. His interactions with his old friend, Lane, his sister, Alexis, his college roommate, Trapper, and his girlfriend, Jazz, explore his relationship with relationships. Where do we find love and does that love have to come all from one place?
