Synopsis by Olivia Cantor

Directed by Tate Taylor, this comedic crime suburban drama follows Sue (Allison Janney), who catches her husband having an affair—and he dies on the spot from a heart attack. She buries the body and reports him as missing. Her story soon gains traction in the local news, especially since her half-sister (Mila Kunis) is a local news reporter trying to catch a break. The former lowkey and underappreciated wife becomes a mini-celebrity. She tries to enjoy this newfound fame as a determined policewoman watches closely, at the same time evading a wannabe-mobster and her deadbeat brother-in-law.
