Synopsis: This electrifying film tracks one very long day for Palace Bryant, a newly minted MFA grad whose final 24 hours in art school become a real trip. She is not going to the fucking graduation party! If this were a reality show, Palace would be the person who was not here to make friends. She needs to get home, back to Chicago from upstate New York. But that means surviving a hazy, hilarious, and hallucinatory night-long odyssey, stumbling from academic critiques to backseat hookups.
