The film follows the turbulent road trip of the artists Aay and Zed, as they tour a new performance piece across the US. They capture the daily joys and tensions of their friendship and collaboration through the lenses of their phones as they struggle to live up to their mantras of feminist empowerment. Dressed in matching outfits there is no escape from each other or from the expectations they set for themselves as artists. Their delusional optimism soon fades as they are faced with each other’s insecurities and have to fight to stay connected.
