Bill has always felt like a misfit growing up the adopted South Korean boy living in a white evangelical community in Austin, Texas. The neurodivergent college drop-out with overbearing parents starts a catering business to follow his dream selling pastries and other delectables.

With his dream fading literally a thousand miles away, Bill sets off on a journey with stranger musician Garrett, who must get his magic drum set to the battle of the bands in Minneapolis by the same weekend. The polar opposites navigate vengeful bandmates, old flames, sorority girl drug mules, and their own pasts on this heavy yet light-hearted buddy road trip adventure. Can Bill shake off his past and become the main character of his own story?
