A neurodivergent woman moves to a new city, leaning on her maladaptive daydreaming to avoid what brought her there.
Overstimulated is an independent pilot that grapples with the desire for intimacy, the pervasiveness of trauma, and the complexities of being neurodivergent- especially when it comes to balancing those first two (often contradictory) impulses.
This series is for anyone who finds themselves overwhelmed by the world we live in- the constant influx of information, entertainment, grief, noise. Especially in the “post”-Covid landscape- it's for all of us who've walked out of isolation with some trauma to be released. Overstimulated is a story for every person touched by some big, unspeakable pain, the ways we repress and hide from that, and how to let that go.
