There's nothing special about Amber. She works from home, gets high, watches TV and wears her mask like a good samaritan... most of the time. But when Amber finds herself in a situation she didn't ask for, Amber must come to terms with her addiction, sexuality and manifest destiny.

Drama, Comedy | 15 min
