Andy is a short story writer, who makes his living by working at a huge faceless company in present day Chicago, writing Technical Manuals. In his active, fertile, writers imagination, we see (and hear as he narrates) the stories of his daily life, as they should be, could be, might be, and even actually how they are. Andy shares his office with the companys newest employee, and Andys newest friend, the frail, jumpy, odd, loveable Byron. Also inhabiting Andys world is his best friend Keith, who is so good looking that Andy must fight his own prejudice against the attractive, who seem to get everything they want, unlike ordinary humans. Supervisor Jessica is also Andys longtime friend and uses her lightening sharp tongue to keep the group out of, or at times, to get the group INTO trouble. The newer receptionist Wendy (Irene Molloy, Grosse Pointe), whom Andy first had a crush on, is dating Keith (somewhat proving Andys Attractive Theory).
