With a cast of four talented musicians, this not-quite-a-musical follows Sam, a young singer-songwriter trying to survive. She has lost her boyfriend, her job, and her dignity, but she lies on a sofa day-dreaming about how life could have been. Her sister Charlie, a producer, hires Christina to help produce Sam’s music. It turns out: Sam dated Christina too. Though Sam and Christina try to work together, their past comes back to haunt them, everything goes wrong. Through a maze of lies, betrayal, murder, and unrequited love, Sam tries to put her life back together by becoming the thing she hates most of all.
