Storyline

A delusional young novelist comes to The City in search of a dream--of fame, of fortune, and the pursuit of happiness. But he also brings the one thing standing in his way: himself. His name is MUNKEY, and he's learning that The City is one big jungle he needs to survive. Munkey dreams of writing the great American novel. The problem is, it's already been written. He's also looking for love in all the right places, but he's just the wrong person. Determined yet confused, hopeful yet awkward, he comes to The City, one of the most vast and wildest places on Earth, in order to "make it." On his journey, he struggles to connect with the people around him, escaping instead through alcohol, drugs, and his own writing. Through much trial-and-error, and with the help of an eclectic band of friends, Munkey must come to realize his own purpose in life, before The City swallows him whole. Though he soon realizes that the singular Evet is the key to unlocking his full potential and future. Written by Michael T. Nguyen
