Warren Eves is having one of those years: his fiancee dumped him, his job wants to fire him, and he blew-up a second date with Tracy - the girl of his dreams. As depression and anxiety take hold of the once promising rock musician, Bruce Springsteen shows up in his apartment to save his life. Warren is sure he’s having a nervous breakdown. But - even so - he has nothing to lose, and begins a friendship with Bruce that leads to regrettable one-night stands, career suicide, and - most importantly - soul searching.
The Survivalist is a comedy about adult disappointments and the choices we make to recover; how those choices can be terrifying, but your imaginary best friend told you to do it.
