"Hug" tells the story of Asa and Drew, a manager and a talented musician on their way to the meeting that could make Drew a star. If Asa has his way, in a matter of hours, Drew will have that record deal. But if Drew has his, Asa will just have to deal. Although it is Drew's bipolarity that today threatens the success they have both worked so hard for, they will only succeed if Asa can learn to be a friend to Drew.
