Parents to be Elliot (Joshua Leonard) and Jackie (an eight-months-pregnant Jess Weixler) are doing just fine until they decide to welcome all their friends in for a baby shower. After opening the wonderful presents, it’s time to pay the price: everyone has precious and detailed information to share. Confronted with the torments of parenthood, Jackie and Elliott are left with no other option but to go on a quest to become fully realized humans in order to better parent their child. But on this journey of self-discovery they must test their limits. Will they take on pegging? Will they or will they not eat two containers of hummus before they go bad? As they release all the issues inside and go hiking on a mountain, an epiphany comes: it’s time to confront the root of all evil. And so they invite their own parents in for a little chat. Leonard builds a strikingly honest and hilarious portrait of parenthood in all its versions.—Mafalda Melo
