Under Neon Lights
It’s the late 1990s, and twenty-five-year-old Joshua, who has never been with a woman, is hungry for love. When he is not typing zip codes during the night shifts at a post office distribution center, he is visiting euphoric dance bars and desolated pubs in an attempt to meet women, only to be met with indifference and contempt. Then, one night, he meets Cynthia…
When the young woman arrives at the post office, she is shown to the computer next to Joshua’s. She speaks to him, and by that becomes the first person in the room to ever address him. As they stand together in the cold during their breaks he discovers a poetic, even tormented soul.
After a lifetime of living as an outsider, Joshua is invited inside the tasteful, artisanal life of Cynthia’s inner circle. He is so certain that if her extended hand touches his, neither will be alone again. But as he senses they are growing closer and closer, Joshua will soon learn that some things are just too good to be true.
