Celeste reads a Snapple bottle cap "Real fact": We can't stop ourselves from suffering, but we can learn how to suffer better" shortly after discovering her fiance having sex with her best friend in a bar bathroom! Though devastated, the Snapple quote intrigues and irritates, resulting in Celeste's quest to determine what it means to suffer better. Seeking out fellow sufferers to help her decode the factoid: a homeless man with a split personality, an octogenarian who invented a dating app, a mute maid longing for love, a clown enduring a bureaucratic nightmare, and an angry teen who threw a rock at Donald Trump's head, she asks which character is suffering best? It's up to you to decide.
