Synopsis by Daniel Gelb

Laney Brooks (Sarah Silverman) is a New Jersey housewife with a picturesque life, a loving and successful husband Bruce (Josh Charles) with whom they have two children. Despite the appearance of happiness, Laney has suffered from depression all her life, stemming from the father that abandoned her and her family at a young age. Laney copes with her affliction through a reckless indulgence in sex, drugs and alcohol. As her addictions worsen, they threaten to tear apart the family at its seams. Adam Salky directed this unflinching drama.
