Freshly graduated and freshly unemployed, Marina, an idealistic fine art student who is living off of her best friend, Wu, struggles to make her meal ticket stay in Hong Kong. So she tries to clear her debt to him by living off of another friend, and this time, it involves a very deadly weapon. A dramedy that follows a toxically symbiotic relationship between two clueless twenty-somethings who are too narcissistic to be aware of their cluelessness, adult-ing tells a “staying-their-age" story of people who learn nothing from society but have everything to say about it. Because they are not yet adults, they are adult-ish, and they are adult-ing.
