It’s far in the future. The climate is unlivable, no one can go outside, and nearly everyone is forced to live alone in tiny rooms. It sucks. Thirty-something strangers Ry (Stanley Wong) and Ria (Shuang Hu) are two of those people. Lonely and lovelorn Ry just wants to find The One, while frustrated workaholic Ria simply wants to live in a house. But both are struggling. Aside from eating nutritionally optimized chicken-shaped cake and staring out their fake windows, there’s not a lot of hope for them.

Then Ry and Ria are selected to participate in a first-of-its-kind contest, where they will spend the weekend in a real, old-fashioned house with each other. If they prove to be compatible, and thus win the contest, they get to stay in the house together forever. But this is far from easy, as neither has seen another person in years, and each has secrets and flaws. All of that, plus interference from erratic contest creator Dallas (Johnny Pemberton), threatens to derail their only chance at a happy future.
