"We are the ones we have been waiting for..." Obama had said. If this were true, Lucy knew she was in big trouble...
This is the story of three Brooklyn neighbors, who after a year of being unemployed, decide to stop looking for work and instead embark on a life of permanent hooky – only to find themselves and each other.
Lucy, your 'tour guide' via her blog "Secret Lives...", begrudgingly accepts the friendship of her unemployable neighbors, Grey and Zac. Having lost hope and the desire to become part of the workforce again, the three decide to follow Zac’s proposal “to abandon the world like the world has abandoned us,” and embark on adventures that they only promised themselves that they would take when they were overworked desk jockeys.
Funded by their Unemployment Checks and cashed out 401(k)s, the quirky team develop an unlikely friendship and an unplanned love triangle as they trip their plight–fantastic.
