Abstract:

Navigating private spats and embarrassing secrets in their upscale Brooklyn neighborhood, four families seek purpose and meaningful relationships until a raucous party combusts in a maelstrom of ego clashes, taboo desires, and hidden cameras.

Welcome to the eclectic Brooklyn neighborhood of Cobble Hill. Ex-groupie Mandy, underwhelmed by motherhood and her current physical state, fakes a debilitating disease to get the attention of her skateboarding, ex-boyband member husband Stuart. He has a crush on the school nurse, Peaches, whose husband Greg wears noise-canceling headphones-- everywhere. A few blocks away Roy, a newly transplanted British novelist, has lost the thread of his next novel... and of marriage to Wendy. Around the corner Tupper, an introverted industrial designer with a warehose full of prosthetic limbs, struggles to pin down his elusive artist wife Elizabeth. Throw in two hormonal teenagers, a ten-year-old pyromaniac, a drug dealer pretending to be a doctor, and a lot of hidden cameras, and you've got a combustible mix of egos, desires, and secrets. -- adapted from jacket
