The Austerity of Hope exposes the interpersonal dynamics of a group of gay friends in Astoria, Queens and the issues they and young adults across the country confronted during the 2008 election of Barack Obama - relationships, careers, finances and sex. During a period that famously renewed the spirit of politics in America, they begin to balance their excitement for the hope he promises with the realization that true change might only come from within each one of them.
