When Mary (Amy Seimetz) returns to work after maternity leave, her workaholic husband, Paul, takes charge of their sleepless baby, Pearl. Pearl's disregard for napping prevents Paul from finishing his screenplay. Mary misses Pearl terribly, but her salary and benefits are the family's only security. As Paul's attachment to Pearl intensifies, his disinterest in his work grows. Money becomes tighter and Mary is left holding the bag. It all comes to a head when Paul makes an unimaginable choice and risks blowing it all. "Incisive...well acted, observed and crafted" - Variety.

"With plenty of wry observational humor...Looby perceptively explores the ironic dilemma faced by many young couples: a mom feels guilty that she's working; a dad feels guilty that he's not." --Gene Siskel Film Center .
