"Things change? Well I'm sick of change. Change is a thief."

30 years old, living in the same town all his life and trapped in a dead-end job where it seems like he can’t open his mouth without offending someone. Everything seems to be changing but him.

Obsessed with the past but unable to face it, he longs for a simpler time of pokemon cards, school nicknames and stable pronouns. But nostalgia is dangerous…

Mediocre White Male is a tragicomedy about being the antihero of our own story and the lies we tell ourselves to keep believing we’re the good guys.
