Beloved by customers and employees alike, Sunnyside Grocers manager Nigel watches his world turn upside down when he becomes public enemy #1 after a would-be white-knight influencer wrongly accuses him of harassing a female customer. Suddenly, Nigel becomes the target of an ever-growing rabid internet mob, which cares more about canceling him than hearing the truth. He must stand up and fight back if he wants to save his job, his reputation, and his entire sense of self. Melons explores cancel culture and the danger of jumping to conclusions before knowing the full story.
