From the legendary Steven Martin comes a surprising new comedy with an offbeat and absurdist look at the comic anxiety lurking just beneath the surface of modern marriage. Get ready for the unexpected when Norm and his wife Corky invite another couple to their Ojai backyard to watch a meteor shower in the night sky. As the stars come out and the conversation kicks off, cocktails flow, tempers flare, and sparks fly—literally.
