Dating is tough. Dating in you late 30's is really tough. Dating in your late 30's with crippling social anxiety... terrifying. Despite these hurdles, and questionable advice from the worst wingmen ever, Troy is ready to take a chance on love. Even if it means falling head over heels into heartbreak.
Arbuckle Syndrome is a delightfully dark comedy about getting out of your head and into the world.
