A wild new comedy about dealing with the outside world by looking within.

Thirty-something Stella is having a very bad day. Barricaded inside her apartment, all Stella wants is to be left with her own thoughts – the problem is, her thoughts keep talking back. And they’ve brought KFC.

REALish is a hilarious and timely trip through the psyche of a woman redefining the battle lines between real life, real problems and being really over it.
