Caleb and Camille Fang (Christopher Walken and Maryann Plunkett) are a couple famous for public, avant-garde comedy skits that featured their children, previously known as Child A and Child B. Now adults with successful showbiz careers of their own, Annie (Nicole Kidman) and Baxter Fang (Jason Bateman) are estranged from their parents and lament their exploitation as kids. When Caleb and Camille go missing, Annie and Baxter reunite at their childhood home to determine if their parents are truly in trouble, or if their disappearance is their final stunt. Bateman directed this off-kilter family drama, which received its world premiere at the 2015 Toronto International Film Festival.
