Preceded by the music video JOHN L.

Leonard’s manifested a date with his ex; now he’s just gotta fix his vibration. Will he learn how to not only love his higher self, but his lower self too?

Spanning the course of a day, WAKE UP, LEONARD is a hilarious train wreck of 24 hours in the life of Leonard right in the middle of his queer journey. Part self-help nightmare, all comedy, this is the story of a broken-hearted seeker, a believer, on his path to self discovery and acceptance. Everyone will connect with this exploration and laugh at the foibles of chasing one's tail, asking unanswerable questions on an endless loop. Follow one man's quest for wellness while failing miserably to stay on his vibe.
