The Tedious Existence of Terrell B. Howell

Terrell B. Howell is a middle-aged man living in suburban/corporate America. He has it all: a stable career, a beautiful family and a mind-numbing existence. Just like most happy couples, the Howells have grown accustomed to their mundane lifestyles, together and yet completely alone. But the desire to feel important in a world all too happy to pass you by finally takes its toll on Terrell. Thrown out of his routine in one random instance, Terrell soon confronts something he is totally unprepared for: Joy. With Joy in his life Terrell finally feels wanted again.
