Bryant Lake Bowl
Featuring: Rachel Finch, Joe Swanson, and Jerome Yorke

Alvin has had it. He sees civilization crumbling around him and wants no part of it. Karen is a die hard optimist with a high pressure job and a relentless ex boyfriend who won't take no for an answer. Alvin and Karen meet on their adjoining balconies and form a friendship that sets their two worlds on a collision course. When Karen tries to bridge the gap between them, she discovers Alvin has one big quirk.
