Freshly fired and uprooted from his suburban Chicago lifestyle, Bennett struggles to adapt to the idiosyncrasies of Southern California living, where he and his wife Julie are faced with radically different attitudes towards parenting. As a stay-at-home dad whose wife is the family breadwinner, Bennett’s masculinity and self-worth are put to the test when he is forced to take the kids on a series of playdates inside the elitist culture of Silicon Beach.

Screens with Independent Pilot Showcase.
