Bill is a narrator. Walter is a narrator, too. Stephen is a stagehand for narrators, but he wishes he were a narrator. Being a narrator is the best job in the world. But as these narrators’ myopic world begins to fold in on itself, and all they talk about is talking (and talking about talking), it becomes increasingly unclear which stories are worth telling—or worth living.
