“No more quiet, no more model minority, no more wacky best friend. At least when we were the bad guys we existed.”
Meet Zayan, an under-employed actor and over-employed dealer who sees himself as the hapless lead in the sitcom that is his life. Everyone else sees him as lazy, self-centered, and useless – if they even notice him at all. As Zayan attempts to transition from being neglected to being notorious, we see how a man whose brushes with oppression, grief, and the sneaking suspicion that he’s become invisible have driven him to the unforgivable.
Invisible is a hilariously dark story tracking one man’s desperate struggle to be seen as the hero of his own narrative.
