Synopsis by Jason Buchanan

A dysfunctional New York family flounders in this dark domestic comedy from writer/director Ash Christian. Felicia (Christine Lahti) is a destructo-therapist who's never had a problem that couldn't be solved by shattering something fragile against a wall, and her longtime husband Percy (David Rasche) has become an island unto himself. Growing up under their roof, siblings Charlie, Michael (Eddie Kaye Thomas), and Adrienne never had a chance at a normal life. But they're trying, and as Michael learns that his sardonic wife Vivian (Thora Birch) is expecting, celibate Charlie falls for his handsome neighbor George, whose wife Robin's (Brittany Snow) fitness obsession has been spinning out of control. Meanwhile Vivian and sex-addicted Adrienne have been doing everything in their power to keep their clandestine affair under wraps. Perhaps if Felicia and Percy could just figure out how to make their marriage work, there may be hope for their emotionally maladjusted children as well.
