One day, on a tour of a community ceramics center called The Annex, Hunter meets Marley. Hunter is immediately drawn to Marley but struggles to talk to him, let alone ask him out on a date. Imaginary knows Hunter needs, “someone special. Someone real”. Hunter will ultimately have to find the courage to approach his crush on his own and find his way into a new community. This courage, as courage does, may come from the most unexpected of places in this big city.
