A Half-Hour Comedy

A wealthy debutante Instagrammer, Heather Edwards, checks into a surreal digital detox center to hang on to her trust fund when her conservative banker father issues an ultimatum. Her arrival creates digital and real-life chaos as her attempts to maintain her 50+ millions of followers inside a WiFi dead zone of 400 acres proves to be nearly impossible--causing her to resort to EXTREME measures. Stuck inside the 'Peaceful Disconnect to Reconnect' wilderness landscape of Helena’s Wellness Center, Heather has to enlist new allies--Jo (the Center nutritionist) & Derrienne (an opportunistic Center employee) as well as the geeky hacker Lucy (her die-hard #1 fan)--to gain the upper hand against her father and his young 4th wife, Gwen. Heather's  ULTIMATE GOAL:  to get to 100 million followers.
