Gareth Holland, the young charismatic presenter of a dreadful shopping channel show goes through a rough day of shooting as his elderly callers unwittingly humiliate him throughout his show (hoping he doesn't become viral again). He is then taken aside by his producer who lets him know of a request from the show's sponsors to finally meet him. He is invited, along with producer Tina, to a dinner at their house the evening of the same day. As they arrive, Gareth is surprised by the identity of his sponsors - they are an elderly couple and the same kind of obsessed hoarders as his audience. They love Gareth and know more about the show than he'd be comfortable with. It seems Tina also has a secret.
