Teenagers are typically caught in the middle—they’re not quite adults, but they’re definitely no longer children. Through a series of scenes and monologues, we meet an eclectic group of teen characters who are trying to communicate with that wannabe special someone, battling controlling parents, swimming for that island of calm in the stormy sea of technology—and many others. What they all have in common is the search for their “Chuck,” that elusive moment of knowing who you are.

In a remarkable moment of pure chance, three professional YouTubers randomly point to the exact same spot on the globe for their next travel destination: Winnipeg, Manitoba. When they arrive in the Peg, the vloggers do their best to capture the truest essence of Winnipeg culture, while acquiring as many “likes” as possible. Their adventures bring them through the madness of Bell MTS Place, and into the cultural hotbed of The Forks. While largely confused with what they see, these YouTubers may have stumbled upon the most successful post of their lives.
