Synopsis: (Mature Subject Matter) Alexa spends her days verbally sparring with her pet parrot, sexting and engaging in late night rendezvous with strange men. As Alexa and her parrot become engulfed in a mutually shared self hatred, their verbal and physical relationship escalates. At times uncomfortable and exhausting, Room for A Pony explores transcending sex and death. Is there hope somewhere outside of the noise of technology, and a potential apocalypse?
