About Be More Chill
Based on Ned Vizzini’s 2004 novel of the same name, Be More Chill follows Jeremy Heere, a high schooler who swallows a supercomputer pill named ‘The Squip’ to try and fit in with his peers. But, as his personality changes, the school kids learn that it’s just better to be yourself.
