Eddie's life is going nowhere: a twentysomething jobless high school dropout who lives with his mom and suffers from crippling social anxiety. To cope, he retreats into his imagination and envisions himself as the charismatic front man of a glam-rock band, just like his idol, David Bowie. But when Eddie's mom tells him that her boyfriend is moving in, she threatens the one place in the world where he feels safe. The two plots—Eddie's actual life as a hermit and his imagined life as a rock star—first unfold in parallel and then merge as Eddie confronts the fact that his life must change.
