The malaise of a generation told through the existential crisis and sexual experiences of a young New Yorker stricken with a deadly disease.Dash is a 23-yr-old New Yorker green out of college. He’s on the verge of launching his own startup, but all his aspirations and drive go out the window after a Lymphoma diagnosis. Naive and fatalistic, Dash hides his disease from loved ones and evades necessary treatment. Instead, he embarks on an evacuative journey of self-discovery. Clubs and parties. Fleeting bursts of love and rejections. Alcohol and vomit, and all other involuntary bodily excretions. Dash sinks into a hole of self-destruction and despondency.
