In STANLEYVILLE, Maria Barbizan (Susanne Wuest) has walked away from her life – her job, her money, her feckless husband and vile teenaged daughter – her entire identity. While loitering in a shopping mall, she is approached by a strange man, Homunculus (Julian Richings), to participate in an even stranger contest for the prize of a “habanero orange compact sport utility vehicle.” She accepts, immersing herself in the competition with her fellow contestants: Andrew Frisbee Jr. (Christian Serritiello), self-styled alpha male and aspiring capitalist; Bofill Pancreas (George Tchortov), amiable bodybuilder and salesperson for the Xircolite Nutrition System; Manny Jumpcannon (Adam Brown), a seedy, failed actor, brimming with wired energy; and Felicie Arkady (Cara Ricketts), sullen, mysterious and focused on destroying her competitors. Only one of them will win, but by the end of the contest, the prize of a compact SUV seems like cold comfort for a lost soul.
