Jessie is feeling trapped and alone on maternity leave in her new Long Island duplex. Starved for adult conversation, she invites the funny and forthright Lina for coffee in their neighboring backyards. They become fast friends, quickly bonding over their shared "new mom" experience despite the financial gulf between them—while someone watches from the mansion on the cliff overlooking Jessie’s yard.
This insightful comedy with dark edges takes an honest look at the absurdities of new motherhood, the dilemma of returning to work, and how class impacts parenthood and friendship in America.
