FLAKY follows a young Nigerian expat named Ibinabo (Tinuke Adetunji) through the exhaustion and turmoil of American City Life. Formerly a renowned track-star in Africa with an MA in Sociology, she works at a seafood restaurant in Harlem. Working alongside her is her only true friend in the city; Aliyah (Danea Osseni), a New Yorker born and raised coming to grips with the realities of motherhood and shared custody. Mimi (Stephanie Pope) owns the restaurant, and manages her subordinates with an iron will. When combined, you have a classic case of workplace rock, paper, scissors; the manager manages the new girl, the new girl bonds with the old-timer, and the old-timer storms out on the manager. During this ordeal, the rhythm of the shop is thrown into jeopardy when Aliyah's flyboy cousin, Reggie (William Martinez), shows romantic interest in Ib while stopping by one day for a "family discount." In any other place, this would be a modern fairytale. But New York always has other plans.
