On their sober anniversary, Syd (they/them), a gender-fluid Latine performance artist enlists Yvette (she/her), a neurotic Korean-American therapist, for emotional support. Syd plans to debut their latest performance art piece at the meeting. Yet upon entering, they discover they're actually at a gathering for Northwest Gathering of Workers and Dreamers of the Light (NWGOWADOL), led by Guy, a charismatic cult leader.

Syd decides to perform anyway—but Yvette unexpectedly steals the show. Overtaken by some invisible spirit, she speaks in tongues; NWGOWADOL swarms her in awe.

The friends process the event afterwards. Yvette's ancestor spirit, Halmeoni (grandma), pays a visit and explains the uncanny events.
