Recently single, Korean-born LA artist Sophia Lee devotes herself to her public performance art, whether it’s a provocative Korean perspective on the LA Riots performed in the park or quirky digital art on social media. To pay the bills, she does odd jobs for TaskRabbit. When a filmmaker reaches out to discuss an acting role in his film, she is excited to explore the opportunity, only to realize he can’t distinguish between her art and her real life identity.

When a stranger makes Sophia late for a TaskRabbit gig, she loses her temper, only to run into this stranger repeatedly and discover a strong connection. Sophia develops feelings for her, but it’s unclear if her love is reciprocated.
