Jean, a VR software developer, encounters real-life consequences while working in virtual reality; Mona, a struggling actress from Harlem, tries to reconcile with her estranged Jehovah’s witness mother; Ruth, a concerned mother, must confront the possibility she has created a monster – her son; Perizad, a Kyrgyz immigrant, returns to her homeland to bury the last male member of her family.
