Mother of two, Penelope (Shannon Plumb), struggles to traverse the daily obstacle course that is motherhood with little help from her husband, Matt (Derek Cianfrance). As his flourishing creative career consumes all of his time, Penelope struggles to balance her artistic aspirations with her motherly responsibilities, stopping at nothing in a quest to find her artistic voice.  Plumb's real-life husband and children play her family in this playful, honest, and at times, harsh look at modern-day motherhood and the difficulties families face everyday.
