In an alternate reality version of present-day California, mild-mannered call centre operator Cassius Green whizzes up the corporate ladder after he discovers his unique ability to adopt a “white voice”. With his career taking off, he falls under the spell of Steve Lift, a sarong-wearing CEO who offers him a salary beyond his wildest dreams. But as Cassius soon discovers, the cost of success could be more than just alienation from both his colleagues and his activist girlfriend Detroit.

A breathlessly inventive and spirited satire, which addresses serious themes of everyday racism and workforce oppression with a fresh wit, surreal wackiness and visual panache.
