Fresh with useless degrees in palaeontology and theme park management, Shifter turns to the only other skill he picked up in college: gaming. Squid Ink is a 20-minute comedy that follows Shifter and his starry-eyed teammates on a quixotic quest to become professional streamers. But first they will need to escape life in a small town filled with minimum wage jobs, toxic relationships and helicopter parents.
