The hyperactive imagination of manic telenovela star Kika K is beginning to affect her waking life, where a stalker, a suicidal ghostwriter, and a venomous rival are aggravating her already all-consuming OCD. As her reality continues to unravel, Kika must embark on a trippy adventure to self-enlightenment, or whatever, to end her hilarious yet personally disastrous self-sabotaging ways. A darkly whimsical, tragicomic take on the cult of celebrity.
