As an office worker wallowing in a mediocre middle class existence, I’m
giving you the opportunity to give me the opportunity of a better one. If you’re asking how this is possible and wondering how you can help, ask and wonder no longer. I come bearing answers. My goal is to crowdfund
one million dollars. And all I ask of you is a donation of two dollars or more. Donate to me today so I can live the life you wish you were living tomorrow. My name is River Conway and I approve this message.
— River Conway, “Save an A$$hole”
River Conway grew up believing a lie, the lie that you can be anything you want to be as long as you put your mind to it. After losing his twenties to an office cubicle in the middle of nowhere, River reaches breaking point and launches a self-aware crowdfunding campaign asking for one million dollars, embarking on a journey that has him ricocheting between the sublime and the ridiculous.
