Housekeeper Miso is a woman of simple pleasures: all she needs is cigarettes, whiskey, and her wannabe-artist boyfriend. Amidst the pressures of big-city life, Miso is unwilling to give up her comforts—so she ditches her apartment and couch surfs at her former college bandmates’. But as she reconnects with old friends, she gets mixed up in the complications of their very different lives. Jumping from couch to couch, Miso reconsiders her place in life and decides on a new path. Microhabitat unfolds a tender, comic narrative that sensitively details the realities of millennial women who experience economic instability, job precarity, and homelessness.
