A reclusive screenwriter with a vivid imagination dreams of making it big in the entertainment business and constantly pushed to step out of her comfort zone into crazy unforeseen circumstances by her extroverted friend.
Boring. Boujee. Mean. Anti-social or some would say asocial… whatever the hell that means. All are terms used to describe some introverted people in today’s society, at least in the mind of reclusive screenwriter, April Clark. She prefers the term “selectively social.” In other words she doesn’t f*ck with a lot of people. She revels in her alone time to recharge her batteries whenever she is drained by everyday life. Her refuge consists of the three W’s that bring her complete and utter happiness: weed, wings and wine. All the essentials that she needs in her introvert survival kit to fuel her vivid imagination when writing her scripts.
April has a big dream of producing films and creating unique roles for women of color. Networking and building relationships with people is the key to getting ahead in the film industry. April’s problem is that she doesn’t want to know any damn body! Her big breasted, super extroverted, social butterfly of a friend, Dee-Dee, tries to save April from her solitude.
Dee-Dee is a firm believer in April's writing talents and encourages her to step out of her comfort zone by influencing her to leave the house on spontaneous dating and networking excursions. Although well intentioned, Dee-Dee’s impromptu plans and outgoing spirit is often a recipe for disaster and their outings always turn into events of unforeseen crazy circumstances.
Amid the wild social events, April’s imagination kicks into high gear where she and Dee-Dee partake in comical reenactments from her favorite movie scenes that relate to their current situation. Drug lords, gangsters, spies, detectives, action stars, women who stumble upon an ancient relic and granted magical powers…etc. All roles that she would love to see black women portray in TV and film.
The Introvert Life takes audiences on a comedic journey and emotional rollercoaster ride of one woman's struggle to get out of her own way to blossom into the best version of herself and fulfill her dreams.
