Ep. 1 & 2

Ulysses and his friends — Carly, Ford and Severine —are trying to navigate the strange and oftentimes bewildering city of Los Angeles. Carly wants to be an actress and secretly works as a cam girl to make money, which opens a door to her exploration of BDSM with her self-absorbed boyfriend Jethro. Ford is an aspiring screenwriter learning the ins and outs of being in an open relationship with his sexually adventurous girlfriend Severine, an astrobiological theorist. Between his sexual and romantic dating app adventures, Ulysses grows increasingly troubled as foreboding premonitory dreams make him wonder if some kind of dark and monstrous conspiracy is going on, or if he is just smoking too much weed.
