Jack goes to a colleague’s house party in hopes of making a good impression with his new co-workers. Although he seems to be a hit at first, Jack flies too close to the sun by making a crass joke about his genitals, and things take an awkward turn. Unable to brush it off and stay in the moment, Jack lets his inner monologue get the best of him. Retreating into his own mind, Jack comes face to face with his subconscious and each of the compartmentalized parts of his personality, including a more neurotic agoraphobic-looking version of himself, WORRIED JACK, and the douchier, more arrogant, COCKY JACK. Jack gives into the forces of his anxiety and attempts to abandon the party, only to learn the hostess, his colleague is struggling with similar insecurities herself. She helps him realize that maybe you don’t have to be a slave to your fears.
