Sad Reality is a unique blend of improvisation, vlogging, traditional sitcom, and man-on-the-street interviews. It follows the story of 3 introverts from Kensington market who are determined to sell the next big reality show. After a few unsuccessful pitch meetings with unimpressed execs, the friends embark on a road trip mission to create "the most successful Canadian reality show of all time".
