Episode 1: Hamburger Blues
Act 1 Synopsis
Our story begins in Oskar's bedroom just before school. He is fumbling on his computer, trying to "live stream" on WhoTube. He has dreams of becoming a popular social media “Influencer.” We learn that the winner of his school’s Show and Tell competition will get a shout out on the school's social media page. That’s a big deal because Oskar wants to increase his social media presence and boost his WhoTube followers.
Boy is he prepared to win this year! He’s worked really hard to create the most spectacular Show and Tell presentation ever! His presentation is sure to impress everyone. But Oskar has forgotten one very important fact—school is online now.
This presents a huge problem and Oskar is very worried he won’t win. Despite being worried, Oskar vows to rise to the occasion and heads into his virtual online class.
