Trapped in a mind-numbing corporate/creative job at cloud media conglomerate HuffBuzzUp, Opal dreams of a simpler IRL existence. She pines for the simple physical exchange of goods–– a once commonplace occurrence, now primarily reserved for large-ticket purchases facilitated by Retail Professionals with degrees from Vassar/Aveda and Hugo Boss Brown.
