SYNOPSIS:
After spending his entire life on display, Jim discovers that they’re
about to change the exhibit.

As the only living part of a futuristic museum exhibit meant to replicate the “ideal” human existence, Jim has everything a man could wish for. With complimentary microwave dinners, unlimited thirst-quenching soda, and over five television channels to choose from, who could ask for anything more? But when his cyborg caretakers decide to introduce a female into the exhibit, his world changes forever. As he tries to relate to Caz, a living, breathing woman, Jim discovers that maybe his sheltered life isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. After a few chaotic days together, they decide that Caz is going to leave on her own. After she escapes, a lonely Jim is forced to decide whether he has the courage to follow her and face the outside world.
