Sophie (Miranda July) and Jason (Hamish Linklater) live in a small LA apartment, have jobs they hate, and in one month they'll adopt a sick cat who will need around-the-clock care. Terrified of their looming loss of freedom, they quit their jobs, disconnect their Internet, and set out to pursue their modest dreams. But as the month slips away, the two find themselves living in two starkly different realities. Sophie and Jason must reunite with time, space and their own souls in order to reconnect. Using elements of magical realism-a talking cat who narrates his own sad tale, a living t-shirt, and a strangely familiar Moon-the film bravely creates its own universe. With pathos and humor, it invites us to recognize the bitter sweetness of this very moment.
