Imagine four relatively advantaged white Los Angelenos on the verge of middle age.
Nutty/beautiful older sister Tina (Amanda Peet) is afraid she'll end up alone. Her married younger sister Michelle (Melanie Lynsky) is bored to tears with the tedium of her life with hubby and baby.
Brett (Mark Duplass), Michelle's husband is a repressed sound engineer who seeks authenticity in his life, a thankless task in his showbiz world. And Brett's friend Alex (Steve Zissis), an out-of-shape, mostly out-of-work actor, is being evicted from his apartment.
