Bene hosted a party at his place last night, and this morning, there’s a stranger passed out on his floor who won’t leave. This is NYC, so Bene isn’t the only character grappling with the mundanity of life. An ensemble cast of Michael Cera, Abbi Jacobson, Michaela Watkins, and Bene Coopersmith together depict a group of New York oddballs – a reserved apartment dweller, an impassioned record collector, and a field reporter on her first day of work, among others – over the course of one day. Their stories don’t necessarily intersect, but it’s their experience of the city that ties them together.
Producers Toby Halbrooks and James M. Johnston in attendance
