Synopsis: EMMA Z. is a short satire that explores the newest 12 Step group to emerge during the 2020 lock-down, “Amazon Anonymous” and its pitfalls. When Liza H. and Peter C. start the 3rd official meeting of “AA,” they are joined by a new member, Emma Z. She is welcomed and taught the rules, but despite Liza A.’s efforts, the conversation continually veers from the meeting’s purpose by mentions of bread makers, soda streams and bidets. Controlling Liza tried to get the meeting back on track until Suzie M. shows up late and is unable to work her Zoom functions. Suzie recognizes Emma and the meeting goes completely off the rails in a burst of “TMI” and descends into utter chaos as the truth about Emma Z. is revealed.
