Five years in the future... the gig economy has expanded to include emotional labor: just as you can catch an Uber or outsource your errands to TaskRabbit, you can hire an emotional labor proxy to break up with someone, educate people to be more “woke,” and cut toxic people out of your life. When Jo takes on the proxy gig of cutting off contact between Frank and his estranged daughter, she never imagines that she will see him through anyone else’s eyes, least of all her own.
