Living Comfortably Numb

David Trent, 31, is a young businessman who weaves his way through his life emotionally and socially detached from his family, friends, and colleagues until one day, he decides to redefine and rediscover the absolute person that resides deep within his core. While on his journey, David befriends a 15-year-old runaway, makes peace with his deceased father whom he blames for his sister’s childhood suicide, reconnects with his estranged mother, and reevaluates the merits of his friendship with his childhood best friend. In addition, David periodically sees an imaginary stranger. This stranger is not simply a mystery, but an apparition of David. David’s apparition provides a gateway into his inner soul. Through it all, David falls in love with a coffee shop waitress, who supports him beyond his doubt and through a mist of madness as he challenges the limits of his past.
