Four twenty-something improv comics struggling with the prospects of love, commitment, and understanding find that happiness can come from the most unexpected places in this independent comedy that proves all's fair in love and improvisation. Nick (Rob Webber) is a philandering English teacher whose emotionally void marriage to Hannah (Annie Armstrong) has finds him seeking thrills elsewhere, but when his affair with Merida (Kendal Ridgeway) goes up in flames, the unhappy husband is forced to face the reality of his failed marriage. While aspiring playwright Harold (Dave Zubradt) and wannabe mom Judy (Dana Cuomo) are happily married, Judy's dreams of motherhood are the stuff of her loving husband's worst nightmares. Meanwhile, Hennesy (Benjamin Travers)' fiancée has just broken off their engagement, leaving the already insecure bachelor more neurotic than ever, and libidinous lothario Patrick (Patrick Dall'Occhio) finds himself experiencing an unfamiliar tingling sensation in his stomach whenever he's in the company of enigmatic beauty Shea (Alison Becker).
