Plot: Jay Masonek is feeling down and out. Although he is a talented artist, Jay has seldom left his small town in Northern California. One day Jay's cousins Jeff and Eric visit from LA. They offer Jay the opportunity to come live with them for a period of time in Hollywood. Hoping to cheer him up, the brothers show Jay the city and take him to film castings, even though it's during the economic recession and jobs are scarce. Jay soon begins to feel the oppression of what he describes as "the grid", turning to excessive partying to fill the void. Through unprecedented animated sequences, real life becomes the landscape for Jay's inner life, as his thoughts, emotions and longing for spiritual renewal are captured. Eventually, Jay returns to his small town, while Eric and Jeff pursue relationships in New York and England. Alone once again, Jay almost loses hope when a powerful moment shakes him to his core and he faces the most important decision of his life.
