Directed by Duke Johnson & Charlie Kaufman

Michael Stone, husband, father and respected author is a man crippled by the mundanity of his life. On a business trip to Cincinnati he checks into the Fregoli Hotel. There, he is amazed to discover a possible escape from his desperation in the form of an unassuming Akron baked goods sales rep, Lisa, who may or may not be the love of his life. A beautifully tender and absurdly humorous dreamscape from the brilliant minds of Charlie Kaufman (Synecdoche, New York) and Duke Johnson, this stop-motion animation wonder features the vocal cast of Jennifer Jason Leigh, Tom Noonan and David Thewlis, and a string-based score by Carter Burwell.
