Saving Unicorns

 


"Real Job", "Real Relationship", "Real Life"... is there such a thing? Everywhere Sady Hart looks, people are getting married, having kids, buying houses, getting promotions … all the Trade Marks of an accomplished adult. For Sady, getting her laundry done is a an accomplishment. Sady keeps waiting for Real Adult Life (RAL) to kick in - that long term, organized life plan she is “supposed” to be following. That said, the only long term plan she follows is guidance from her life-long friend. That is Unicorn - her sassy, foul mouthed, martini -loving imaginary friend. Together, Sady and Unicorn attempt to gallop into “RAL”. With Unicorn by her side, Sady lives by her rules, in her own reality, learning that Real Is Overrated. (RIL?)
