After Mel Gibson's death by monsters in 2006, the United States built the National Monster Refuge, nestled in the shadows of the mountains. One evening, a young hipster, Gerald Cromwell, slays a monster whilst working at a restaurant, saving the customers. The ensuing media frenzy draws the attention of Bethany, a young woman at the restaurant that night. Gerald's best friend and roommate, Tucker, becomes wary of the girl and her clique of friends. The film follows Gerald as he encounters softball teams, a kind medic girl, a blogger, and a public access show host and his puppet. Worlds collide as Gerald learns about life, trust and love in a time of monsters.
