After fifteen years of living in a cult, the unbreakable and wide-eyed Kimmy (Ellie Kemper, "The Office") is rescued along with four other women, causing a national sensation that culminates with an appearance on the "Today" show. Before getting back on the bus to Indiana, however, Kimmy decides it's time to reclaim her life. Armed with just a backpack, light-up sneakers, a couple way-past-due library books and a big wad of rescue-fund cash, she's ready to take on New York City.
It's easily the best time of Kimmy's life as she rides subways, plays with street performers, frees Central Park horses and makes a spontaneous decision to rent a room from Titus, a gay wannabe Broadway actor who makes a living dressing as a robot in Times Square. This unlikely pairing may not seem ideal, but it quickly becomes clear that they can really help each other out: Kimmy needs someone to reintroduce her to the modern world, and Titus could use someone to show him that you should never give up on life, no matter how many times you get rejected from performing in "The Lion King." As long as they stick together ... they might just make it after all. Hakuna matata!
