‘Avocado Toast follows Adam, a hardworking mid-30’s man who has led a cautious life. He has always done the selfless thing: spending time with his wife and children, being there for his friends, going to church, and working a job he doesn’t love. Adam has always identified as a member of Generation X, and he has always relied on his hard work ethic to propel him in life. He goes on a journey to start doing whatever he wants and connecting with the millennial mentality. Adam throws out his drab business attire for hipster clothing, complete with fake glasses and stylish hats. He trades in his boring office job for a barista position at a coffee shop, where he meets a young millennial named Sydney. Adam’s selfish behavior begins to take a toll on his marriage, family, and his irresponsibility starts putting a strain on his finances.
Feeling trapped with his safe and boring life, Adam finally decides to cut loose and “become a millennial.” as the new, enticing life he builds starts to take over his old, safe life, he will have to decide if the grass is, in fact, greener on the other side. Avocado Toast is a dramedy with hilarious dialogue scenes, as the characters analyze the moronic things that plague our culture and fun flashbacks that showcase the imaginative mind of Adam. The story will also pull on the heartstrings, as it deals with significant issues of the inner struggles of going through a life crisis and choosing your happiness over the happiness of those you love.’
