Living in boring Plainsville, USA, Dave never changes his daily routine and wouldn’t have it any other way. However, he gets promoted to a job in New York City, so he and his daughter move there. Much to his surprise, on his first day he encounters ghosts, meteors, and monsters. He is set on returning to Plainsville, but his daughter loves New York. He has to learn how to put aside his difficulties and deal with the new everyday stresses, like natural disasters and wormholes, that this New York City from the movies throws at him.
