An outsider, Lennon longs to be a part of the thriving underground music scene in Columbus, Ohio. But the only way the quiet and self-conscious Lennon can position herself next to the artists she admires is by interviewing them for her podcast. Obsessed with recording everything around her in an attempt to connect with the indie art scene, what starts out as a passion project slowly transforms into a dark obsession. Lennon’s sense of identity becomes increasingly blurred as she begins to fixate on one artist in particular, Bobbi Kitten, a confident and talented songwriter whose stage presence emulates everything Lennon wishes to be. As the two become closer, and Bobbi encourages Lennon to share her own music, the revelation of a disturbing secret will bring everything to a boiling point. Featuring an array of real musicians from the underground music scene in Columbus, POSER is a gripping indie drama with a uniquely familiar backdrop. —G.S.
