Title: Jumping Ants
Genre: Upmarket Commercial Fiction
Logline: With a talent for self sabotage, the charming but aimless Max gets himself hired, fired, and evicted in quick succession. While waiting in line at a fast-food drive-thru, the twenty-nine-year-old is carjacked at gunpoint. Max’s weekend-long journey with this peculiar stranger, an older, rounder, more desperate version of himself, leaves him with a black eye and a crush on a feisty bartender. Max learns that the unfazed grin he’s been honing hasn’t been fooling anyone, least of all himself.
