Joe, a 35-year-old advertising copywriter for a slick New York company, feels disillusioned with his life. Soon he starts dreaming of a mysterious man and, not long after, begins seeing him on the street and hearing his voice. The voice overwhelms Joe, and he starts to listen to it, camping out on the front steps of his stoop, waiting for instructions. The media take note. And soon he has become a story, a media sensation, the center of a storm. When the voice tells him to go west, he does, all the while searching for this man, this mysterious voice that won’t leave him alone. Until it does.
Waiting for the Man is a compelling and viscerally emotional story about the struggle to find something more in life.
