Evan is what you would call accident-prone. Having suffered from various injuries his entire life, he's now been randomly stabbed in the shoulder. In his apartment, his sister and his fiancée are trying to help him recover while fending off a steady stream of visitors as well as a bitter neighbor with a thing for stuffed cats. Something isn't quite adding up though, as Evan's apartment becomes a buzzing hub of secrets and lies from which no one emerges unscathed.
