After the sudden death of his wife, children's book author Ben Grady (Grant Rosenmeyer) goes through an extreme mourning process, alienating himself from his sister Gloria (Lucy DeVito) and her husband Tom (Nican Robinson). When Ben stumbles upon the dark web, he discovers a mysterious self-help book written by an enigmatic guru named "Mealworm" (Oscar Nominee Paul Raci), who claims to have harnessed the power to fly. The book arrives...and so does Mealworm, forcing Ben to navigate his family life, accusations of foul play, and the bizarre rituals laid before him by his new mentor, in the hopes of healing and, just maybe, achieving human flight.
