When Annie arrives in Seattle for the weekend, she has two objectives: watch her brother Will graduate from the MBA program at the University of Washington and hook up with that piece of man meat she’s been objectifying for the last two years. It’s mutual, or so she thinks. Without warning, Ben is proposing marriage — citing latent Judaism and a lucrative new job. And Annie isn’t totally opposed to the idea.

Utilizing a percussive personification of anxiety’s relationship to technology, Halcyon explores long distance friendship, hasty decisions, moral grey areas, and — oh yeah — the 2016 election.
