Neurotic Quest for Serenity

Kika is going through a lot. She’s a famous actress. She has millions of fans. She’s about to star in a post apocalyptic soap opera. And she has obsessive compulsive disorder. But she can’t seem to find happiness, anywhere she looks: her career, her relationship or even her self help book she never wrote in the first place. After a ghostwriter sends her a secret message Kika feels there might be something to look for. Will Kika still find happiness? Will she find true love?
This is a comedy about the meaning of life. Whatever that means.
