Wyatt, a pessimistic narcoleptic who lives in a slump house-like condo, needs to be a columnist, yet all he’s figured out how to finish is a humble temp work at the ultra-hip clickbait organization Slice. His vocation dreams are almost dashed when he sees a puzzling young lady named Fern living on his piece in a 88′ Toyota Tercel hatchback. Captivated, he chooses to meet her in the trusts of composing a story that Slice may distribute. He discovers that Fern’s dad disappeared and expected dead when she was a youthful kid living in Montana. In the wake of getting a secretive letter from an outsider named Dr. Green, advising her that her dad is alive and living in LA, she chose to go search for him herself. Together the two set off on a voyage to locate Fern’s subtle father among the abandoned corners of the city, while building up a not all that non-romantic enthusiasm for each other en route.
