Ray has a thirst to enter the world of art curation, recently quitting his job and on a mission to create a new life for himself. Thanks to an opportunity provided by Dab - a friend in the art world - and his own entrepreneurship, the two come together to put on their own exhibition. While planning the show on a rainy day in a cafe, Ray becomes captivated by a waitress, Joy, who in turn is enamoured by his explanation of the exhibition.
As Ray works towards his show, he becomes closer to Joy, and meets a new band of people who help him on his journey. This new adventure thrusts him into the highs and lows of the art world, his newfound friendships and love interest, alcohol, and the drugs that tease him.
So much change makes Ray's anxiety rise, and when he starts to lose control of the future, he so desires, can he make it to the other side, or will he be left with that familiar feeling of regret?
