He moves back to Los Angeles for a while, and he is glad to reconnect with his mom and old girlfriend. Life begins looking up. Then things change abruptly when his mom's next-door neighbor Gus kidnaps him and holds him hostage. While police surround the house, Robert calms Gus down by teaching him some improvisational exercises. He takes to it well, and soon the two of them begin unloading years of secrets on each other.
