Hapless out of work actor, Rylan, is down on his luck and facing pressure from all angles. The strongest of these coming from his over bearing father who wants him to come back to reality on the family farm in Saskatchewan. With help from his roommates, Aadila and Eric, (who have more than enough issues of their own to deal with) Rylan must navigate the turmoils of a failing career, a broken heart, and an ongoing inner battle to stand up for himself and learn to fight for what he wants. With Aadila destined for stardom, Eric coasting in neutral, and Rylan teetering on the brink of giving up, will they be able to manage love, auditions, and chaos?
This guy's a mess. He's an out of work actor still living under his father's thumb. He makes his living dressing up like a clown and being slapped and bossed around by babies at their birthday parties. He is all too willing to date a girl who handles more salami than your local butcher. All in the name of chasing his dreams.
A working actor on the cusp of making it big. Sometimes blissfully unaware of the things happening around her, Aadila will go as far as she allows herself to.
This guy is never afraid to share his opinions on the news of the day while simultaneously remaining completely blind to his own flaws.
A leader in the "love yourself" movement, Tyler is his own biggest fan. And...well... you'll see.
