Postcards from a Dead Girl is the tragicomic story of Sid Higgins, a twenty-something telemarketer in the midst of a crisis. His sales are down, he thinks he might have a brain tumor, and his ex-girlfriend, Zoe, keeps sending postcards from exotic locations but he's pretty sure she's dead. Sid's family isn't much help. His sister Natalie accuses him of being a hypochondriac. His mother has been deceased for years, but complains occasionally through a bottle of '67 Bordeaux. And his dog, Zero, hounds him to stop worrying so much. Intent on solving the mystery of the postcards, Sid embarks on a journey to trace their origin. His search takes him from New Jersey laundromats to Barcelona discotheques, but he's always one step away from the truth. Part Walter Mitty, part Woody Allen, Sid must come to terms with the dark reality of his past to make way for something (or someone) good in his future.
