She dislikes her job, her relationship is on the rocks, oh, and she has an imaginary friend whom she has absolutely nothing in common with. Our film follows the unusual life of Toogie (played by James Mathis III), an imaginary friend assigned to Jennifer, as he struggles to deal with his imaginary friendship with Jennifer and his real friendship with other imaginary friends. Yeah… there are other imaginary friends. You didn’t think he was the only one did you? This unlikely pair seeks help from Jennifer’s therapist, Dr. Skochine (played by Tara Jayn) who, while well intentioned, is ill-equipped to deal with this type of couples therapy.”
