“A sharp, empathetic and timely comedy.” - The Film Stage
The divisions in adjunct professor Josh’s (Justin Long) professional and personal lives are taking a toll. His college students rebel against him after a triggering incident in his classroom, and his family is also chaotic: loving but splintered in the face of his beloved grandmother’s illness. His mother (Fran Drescher) sorts logistics while struggling to face the imminent loss of her mother. Everyone convenes at the hospital, trying to give and find support in the face of uncertainty. Josh begins to listen in earnest and think beyond himself as he confronts these divides. This good-natured New York City comedy explores how people face the modern crises in their lives—both natural and self-inflicted.
