Wally Spivak is at his wit's end. A frustrated, unpublished author who's surrounded by a group of underachieving buddies and pretentious hipsters in the gentrifying Echo Park neighborhood of Los Angeles, Wally is stuck in a rut and can't get out. But when he strikes up an unlikely friendship with an engaged couple from the west side, Wally starts to see things in an entirely different way - and his life takes a turn for the better...
Wally Spivak (Michael Bacall) is a small time writer - uncool and unpublished. His "friends" who aren't much more cool than Wally themselves, still needle him incessantly that he just keeps redrafting the same manuscript. Alone at an all but deserted bar on Valentines night he's unexpectedly picked up by Jannine (Maggie Lawson), a totally cool girl from very much the other side of town. What is going on?
Enter Chuck (Robert Kazinsky), the irrepressible British golf pro harbouring a secret yearning for literature - a character so unlikely that the word surreal comes to mind. Despite the inexhaustible good humour and generosity of the new rich kids in his life, Wally is still overthinking - sure there must be a downside just around the corner.
Like an author's dream, the vein of surrealism persists, but everyone acts their part with conviction and we're carried along by the unlikely train of events. We shouldn't be overthinking either, just taking in the entertainment and enjoying the ride.
