Alex, Emily, and their son, RJ, have recently moved to Los Angeles' Eastside from Seattle. Feeling lost in a new city, they are desperate to find their first new friends. After a chance meeting with Kurt at the neighborhood park, they gladly agree to join family pizza night at the home. But as it gets later and the kids go to bed, the family 'playdate' becomes increasingly more revealing and bizarre as the couples begin to open up.
"I was thinking about friends of mine in their mid 30's and they were a couple years into having a kid and there's this sort of giving up on your social life and yourself a little bit that happens and I'm not a parent yet, but I plan to be and it's sort of a cautionary tale. So I thought it was a nice starting point to think about people in that situation and put them in a jar with crazy people and shake it up."
