In Gramercy Tavern, engaged couple, MARCH BERGER (Late 20s) and RED CORBY (Late 20s), debate their incompatibility. Red breaks up with March. Three months later, March's proposal at her publishing firm, gets struck down by her boss, HOPE TRACER (50s). Later, March and her coworkers, BLUSH MEEKS (20s) and CARBON TRULY (30s) discuss sex robots and relationships at a bar.
In her modern but empty house, March browses male sex dolls online. A few days later, one arrives in the mail. She powers it on, but is alarmed when it speaks and powers it back off.
In Nelsonville, NY, a suburban town much more familiar than the hyper-efficient Manhattan where March lives, DELL BERGER (30s), March’s sister, watches March tosses a football with her son, REGIS (11). The women discuss partner compatibility.
Back in Manhattan, March goes to a bookstore where long-form literature has been replaced by hyper-abridged versions. She returns home and makes love to her robot sex doll.
At work, Hope berates March for not making her abridged versions abridged enough, giving her until the end of the quarter to improve.
In her apartment, March talks to the sex doll, DAVID JOHN. He makes suggestions about her work, but she dismisses them.
