SYNOPSIS

Emily, a would-be writer, retreats home to O’ahu after Manhattan finally gets the best of her.¬†Trading one island for another doesn’t help, though, and when she stumbles into a gig as an actor on a shock-jock radio dating show, she finds herself strangely determined to turn fantasy into reality. Told through a playful mixture of phone calls, voicemails, and live radio spots,¬†Today Is My Birthday is a comedy about loneliness in the age of connection.
