Jack (Tom Noona) and Rita (Julie Hagerty) are husband-and-wife therapists, trapped in a fragile marriage and sharing a practice out of their remote Vermont farmhouse. One night, a patient, Cosmo (Wallace Shawn), unexpectedly drops by for dinner with his outrageously candid wife, Arlie (Karen Young), who wants to know what secrets her husband is sharing with Jack and Rita. What follows is a delirious evening of shattering revelations, as each couple is forced to confront the fault lines in their own relationships.
