About Safety Not Guaranteed
A comedy based on a real advert found in the classifieds section in the '90s. Darius (Aubrey Plaza) is a pessimistic magazine intern whose days are peppered with menial tasks like changing toilet paper rolls. Obnoxious staff writer Jeff (Jake Johnson) decides to investigate the seemingly crazy person who placed an ad looking for a time travel companion: 'Must bring your own weapons. Safety not guaranteed. I have only done this once before.' So Darius is asked to accompany him to Washington, along with mild-mannered Arnau (Karan Soni) who is only working at the magazine to pad his C.V. When they meet Kenneth (Mark Duplass) the supposed time traveller Darius only pretends to believe his story, but his awkwardness and earnest paranoia begin to win her over.
