Carol, an emotionally repressed woman, loses friends and alienates people when she begins singing songs she wrote about people she knows. But she unexpectedly inspires her boss, to whom she dedicates the song Asshole Dave, to attempt to reignite his dream of becoming a rock star.
Carol, an emotionally bottled up woman, discovers the pitfalls of honest self-expression when she begins writing and singing songs she wrote about people she knows. Her songs immediately alienate her friends and co-workers with one notable exception: her boss Dave, to whom she dedicates the song Asshole Dave. Inspired by the song, Dave fires Carol with a nifty severance so she can pursue her music. Dave, in turn, quits his job, and picks up a guitar in an attempt to revive his long-abandoned dream of becoming a rock star. But Dave’s resolve is challenged when he finds himself in a hotel room in California without his medication. The two misfits soon find themselves working with a strange record producer, Silent G (nee Doug), whose work inspires Carol to confront her biggest emotional obstacle: her mother. Unable to find satisfaction, Carol pours her entire severance package into producing a full album that she shares with her “friends” at a special LP release party.
