Anna's and Ben's marriage is on the rocks: An unspoken tragedy lies beneath the surface of the thirtysomething couple's daily bickering. Their therapist makes an unusual suggestion to try and save their relationship: Why don't they turn their fights into songs? They dust off their old guitar in the garage and found a band with their neighbors. Zoe Lister-Jones' directing debut is a funny rock 'n' roll tale of modern-day love.
