Synopsis

An off-centre comedy about Victor, a thirty-something man, fresh out of group therapy, with a compulsion to tell his strange and fateful story to perfect strangers. Through posting homemade flyers on the main street of a town called Hope Springs, Victor attracts a motley audience of ten, seemingly unrelated, none of whom really know why they are there.
