An array of lost souls straggle inside a quickly emptying midwestern mini-mall. Nineteen-year-old Casey works the food court, tending to her burrito stand. As Ari, Casey’s cousin, runs a shifty business, the arrival of Gus, the new hire, slowly unveils the secrets within this stagnant community. Rife with balloon animals, cartoon flashbacks, cheap raps, and hallucinogenic gecko feces, this new dark comedy questions what it means to be “normal” in a place of surreal banality.
