What Is the Story of Asuncion?
Asuncion follows Edgar, a socially awkward former college student and unmotivated aspiring journalist living with Vinny, his onetime pot-smoking teacher’s assistant at an upstate New York university. Edgar’s brother Stuart, a Wall Street executive, arrives at their apartment unannounced with news that he has married a Filipino woman named Asuncion, whom he met online.

Edgar suspects Asuncion may be a former sex worker and begins interviewing her about her life in hopes of proving his theory
